    I suspect you have KMS issues. You could try disabling the kernel modesetting for your video card.
    This is my setup

    Code:
    [eduardo@eduardomanjaro ~]$ inxi -c 5 -b
    System:    Host: eduardomanjaro Kernel: 3.16.7.8-1-MANJARO x86_64 (64 bit)
               Desktop: Cinnamon 2.4.6  Distro: ManjaroLinux 0.8.12 Ascella
    Machine:   System: Hewlett-Packard product: HP Pavilion dv5 Notebook PC v: 0589110002242B10000020100
               Mobo: Hewlett-Packard model: 144E v: KBC Version 66.31
               Bios: Hewlett-Packard v: F.26 date: 02/23/2011
    CPU:       Dual core AMD Turion II P540 (-MCP-) speed/max: 2200/2400 MHz
    Graphics:  Card: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] RS880M [Mobility Radeon HD 4225/4250]
               Display Server: X.Org 1.17.1 driver: radeon
               Resolution: [email protected]
               GLX Renderer: Gallium 0.4 on AMD RS880 GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 10.5.1
    Network:   Card-1: Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller
               driver: r8169
               Card-2: Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express)
               driver: ath9k
    Drives:    HDD Total Size: 500.1GB (83.7% used)
    Info:      Processes: 163 Uptime: 1:57 Memory: 1989.8/3701.0MB
               Client: Shell (bash) inxi: 2.2.19

    I havent filled a new bug report since I have seen similar bugs reports around the web (in bug.freedesktop.org and list.freedesktop.com), I always though this was the bug report related to my problem http://lists.freedesktop.org/archive...er/073964.html but since he use intel hardware then Im not sure.

    but I wonder why this regression hasnt been fixed yet. I will take a look about the KMS thing.

    You should check the kernel Bugzilla and report it if you can't find anything obvious. The kernel developers depend on users filing bugs since they can't test on every possible hardware that's out there. Also, bisecting it to a specific commit helps a lot.

    If it started happening with 3.18, why not use 3.17 instead of 3.16?
    because kernel 3.17 is not supported anymore, 3.16 is still in the Manjaro repos (since its supported by Canonical)

    There is a typo, replace 3.0 with 4.0 ;-)

    Have a nice day!
