Zorin OS 16 core freezes when suspended

Hello, I have recently installed Zorin OS 16 core on my laptop. Whenever I close the lid of my laptop and then open it, the screen freezes. None of my inputs(keyboard, mouse) work. A similar thing happened when I manually suspended the system.

The only way to make the system work again is to force shut down it and turn it back on. Is there a way out of it as this bug defeats the purpose of having a laptop.

What Graphics card are you running?
Or you can supply a printout here on the forum with

sudo apt install inxi && inxi -Fz

Once installed type...

inxi -G

Here's mine for reference...

Here you go

OK, looking at your INXI readout, it looks like you have dual GPU's just as I do. You have your Intel UHD GPU, and you have your Nvidia 1050 GPU. I'd like you to try something and lets see if we can fix this problem with a simple extensions...

Please install Nvidia Prime Indicator

And once activated, its going to be found in your taskbar, as seen by the picture they provided on the page. Make sure you have enabled Gnome Integration in your browser, then just click the on/off button toggle to install and activate.

I want you to select your Nvidia GPU only please with the extension in the taskbar. Yes, Nvidia GPU only, no Intel, no hybrid, just Nvidia. This should tell your system to prioritize the Nvidia GPU only.

Now lets see if you still have the same problem. If you do, I might have to recommend that we disable suspend capabilities in your system, as well as disable the notebook LID-Switch.

Can you please try:

sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall

sudo systemctl disable nvidia-fallback.service

sudo nano /etc/default/grub

Arrow key down to this line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
and change it to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nouveau.blacklist=1"
once done, run

sudo update-grub

Reboot and test.

I do not believe that the Nvidia-390 is supported along with the 5.11.0 kerneal used by Zorin.
You should be able to install the Nvidia-460.59 driver to enable that support:

sudo apt install nvidia-460

I get this error.

Try adding the repository, first:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa

Then see if you can get the dkms package:

sudo apt install nvidia-dkms-460

Still having some issues

sudo apt install linux-modules-extra-5.8.0-41-generic

sudo apt install nvidia-dkms-460

Still same issue
