Strange behavior on wake up

So, sometimes it can be wake up... I see a blank screen... Only pushing the restart button on my case solves this problem

My specs:
Zorin OS 16 PRO
i5 3570k
RX570 4GB
Gigabyte Z77-d3h

This is a common Ubuntu and Ubuntu-derivative complaint. Often times, a person will suddenly start experiencing this after a kernel update.
Like a snake swallowing its own tail... It seems like Ubuntu has been unable to get a handle on the "blank screen upon wake" issue for many years; with it rearing its head over and over again.

Have you disabled power management yet?

CTRL ALT T to enter terminal.

xset -dpms

Since this is the same issue, I am crosslinking each other's post, in hopes that a resolution presents itself quicker for both of you to see.

Good luck to you both!
