[Bug 1573120] Re: VGA monitor goes to sleep randomly in 16.04


I have done a fresh Ubuntu 16.04 install and then I have installaed the
mainline kernel suggested, i.e. 4.6.0-040600rc6-generic.

I have tested all day long the machine and it seems there is no random
monitor shut-down anymore, nor "[drm:intel_cpu_fifo_underrun_irq_handler
[i915]] *ERROR*" in the kernel log.

It seems this problem has somehow been fixed.

Will update in case of new problems.

Thanks for your help.

  VGA monitor goes to sleep randomly in 16.04

Status in i915 package in Ubuntu:
Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Without any clear correlation to events, the VGA output of my
  NUC5i3RYH goes to sleep, while the other output (HDMI) has no problem.

  The running system is Ubuntu MATE 16.04 amd64 with kernel
  4.4.0-21.37-generic 4.4.6

  The NUC5i3RYH has an onboard HD Intel 5500.

  It does NOT happen in 14.04 nor in 15.10.

  The monitor can be waken up again with xrandr with this script:

       ### Switch off DP1 = VGA
       xrandr --output HDMI1 --mode 1280x1024 --output DP1 --off

       sleep 1

       ### Turns it on again
       xrandr --output HDMI1 --mode 1280x1024 --output DP1 --mode 1280x1024 --auto --right-of HDMI1 --primary

  The only info I found is in kern.log:

       [80299.466886] [drm:intel_cpu_fifo_underrun_irq_handler [i915]]
  *ERROR* CPU pipe A FIFO underrun

  No info in Xorg.log

  Will someone please help?
