[Bug 1527714] [NEW] Nvidia drivers brutally switch off laptop at lightdm


Public bug reported:

HP Elite book 8740W
NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M
Fresh 15.10 install, update & upgrade.
Kernel 4.2.0.
Installed nvidia-driver-* (no matter which version)
As soon as lightdm show up on screen, laptop brutally switches off.
At this point, I/O power button has no effect anymore. I have to manually unplug/plug power line for the computer to be able to restart.
Besides, remove +purge nvidia-* brings back Nouveau driver.
