Nvidia Xorg seems to "fall asleep" causing all users of it to suffer very low performance until I use x11vnc to send input to the server, then it recovers. Maybe someone knows there is an Xorg config or command option to fix this?
Thanks, looks like I should include
Option "HardDPMS" "false"
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.
- 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.
The website Shadertoy.com reliably hangs Firefox tabs after a shader page reload in Firefox 70 but not in Firefox 68.Just tested Firefox 70.0.1 real quick. No issue so far with WebGL.

I do it before test 13.0 but I did not have nvidia-hybrid-graphics port in /usr/ports/x11/ neither the nvidia-headless-utils mentionned in the diff file.
That is why I am lost.

to be sure that NVidia graphics is used (in the laptop display, I have the same perfs with glxgears and optirun glxgears).
glxgearsis not a test of overall GPU power, the limiting factor is usually the framebuffer throughput of the method used for transporting frames to the display (naturally, direct Integrated graphics typically outperforms Nvidia->Integrated proxy). FPS for an on-screen demo at or above monitor refresh rate means nearly nothing for GPU rendering power.
glxgears -infoto see a summary of OpenGL support including which GPU is used in that environment.
Hi, are you using https://github.com/pouya-eghbali/freebsd-nvidia-optimus (deprecated) or https://reviews.freebsd.org/D22521 ?How to start optimus service automatically?? I do have optimus_enable="YES" in rc.conf but after reboot service is not started, I have to start it manually?

Some of this is going to depend on the hardware.Is this functionality supported by the driver?
