Hi, I'm probing archlinux with i3wm tiling window manager. I love it! I
come archlinux + kde desktop.

I have a dell xps 13' model 9370. I have a problem when work with two
monitors. The primary monitor (laptop) freeze any open container (terminal,
program...) randomly in workspace. This only occur in laptop screen.

Something like this:

# Video

My xrandr config is:

xrandr --output eDP1 --primary --mode 1920x1080 --pos 3440x360 --rotate
normal --output DP1 --mode 3440x1440 --pos 0x0 --rotate normal --output DP2
--off --output HDMI1 --off --output HDMI2 --off --output VIRTUAL1 --off

I try all, debug i3wm with i3-dump-log, and search in google but I can't
find the problem.

The workspace freeze and cannot kill containers. The only things is restart
lightdm ...

My i3config is very basic.
