Thanks, looks like I should include
Option "HardDPMS" "false"
in the xorg template.

  • Having Nvidia loaded prevents suspend from working (it seems to start to suspend but bounces); having nvidia not loaded prevents it from working after suspend until a dance with acpi_call and more suspend/resumes to unstick its power state.
I discovered this was my fault, caused by some leftover devd hooks running acpi_call from when I was experimenting with ondemand Nvidia power switching.

Just tested Firefox 70.0.1 real quick. No issue so far with WebGL.
The website Shadertoy.com reliably hangs Firefox tabs after a shader page reload in Firefox 70 but not in Firefox 68.
