KWIN: Desktop effects were restarted due to a graphics reset

Registered Member
Hello everyone!

I searched but couldn't find an answer to this question. First let me state that I love KDE Neon and that I have abandoned Windows, and even my new Macbook Pro is getting neglected at the moment. I have installed it on my beastly workstation at home and on a Lenovo P50 laptop and Windows is now relegated to VMs (except for Star Citizen in which case I dual boot) :)

In any case, here's the issue. It is present on both my desktop and my laptop, and I'd love to get to the bottom of it. Whenever I suspend to RAM and reawaken the computer, the text underneath my desktop folders becomes graphically distorted until they are relocated on the desktop. Then they become just fine. Also, Latte-Dock shares the same exact distortion but on the entire icon. All that I have to do to fix Latte-Dock's icons is to mouse over them. Then everything is back to normal. Here is what I am looking at:



I have noticed that in Notifications, KWIN reports that "Desktop effects were restarted due to a graphics reset" after I wake up from sleep.

I first noticed this on the laptop after I switched from Nouveau to Nvidia's latest driver. On the desktop, I am running Nvidia's latest driver from the beginning and this issue has always been there.

Nvidia Driver Version: 387.34

This is not the end of the world, but as you can imagine in cheapens an otherwise fantastic experience.

I am running:

KDE Plasma version: 5.11.4
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.40.0
Qt Version: 5.9.2
Kernel Version: 4.10.0-40-generic
OS Type: 64-bit

Can anyone please help me get to the bottom of this?
