Ubuntu with nVIDIA’s Proprietary Driver won’t Wake Up from Suspend

The Ubuntu 20.04LTS running on my i5-9400F and nVIDIA GT720 won’t wake up from suspend mode. It’s related to the proprietary driver nvidia-driver-470. Disabling nvidia-suspend solves this issue but the authentication dialog will pop up twice from suspend every time.

To disable:

$sudo systemctl disable nvidia-suspend

To check if these related services are still running:

$sudo systemctl status nvidia-suspend nvidia-hibernate nvidia-resume

● nvidia-suspend.service - NVIDIA system suspend actions
     Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/nvidia-suspend.service; disabled; vend>
     Active: inactive (dead)

● nvidia-hibernate.service - NVIDIA system hibernate actions
     Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/nvidia-hibernate.service; enabled; ven>
     Active: inactive (dead)

● nvidia-resume.service - NVIDIA system resume actions
     Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/nvidia-resume.service; enabled; vendor>
     Active: inactive (dead)


  1. nVidia: [FIXED] Suspend / Resume issues with the driver version 470
  2. nVidia: Ubuntu 20.04 with nvidia-460 driver freezes randomly after resume from suspend/hibernate
  3. askUbuntu: Ubuntu 20.04 doesn’t wake up after suspend
