I made an app includes a basic script. when you click on it:
  • it puts display into sleep
  • waits 1 second
  • wakes up display
  • Closes itself

do shell script "pmset displaysleepnow"
delay 1
do shell script "caffeinate -u -t 2"

You sort of read my mind, this is a great idea. Question, though... Do you know if you have to wait for the glitch to start happening before you use the sleep display fix? I guess what I'm getting at is, there are a few solutions that will run a script on wake and I am wondering if running the script at every wake would prevent the glitch.

I feel like I tried the hot corner right after waking up the computer once and the glitch happened after that, but I don't remember for sure. I don't have my 1060 installed right now, so I can't test it.

BINGO!! It works for me. :thumbup: :clap: :clap:

However, I'm disappointed that Nvidia has not offered up a solution. Last driver version was released May 16.

EVGA gtx1060 SSC 6gb (2 fan). I think it is driver related as well, a lot more people are reporting it on insanelymac
I have the same GPU like yours and the screen goes crazy like you said. Turning off the monitor and turning it back on works for me. I wish an update got released soon.

I spoke with Ray at Nvidia. He made it seem like they have every intention to update the driver, but wouldn't comment about how high of a priority it is. I wonder if they are abandoning Sierra drivers as beta and looking to implement full support in High Sierra. Personally, if I were Nvidia, I wouldn't invest any more money into Sierra knowing that High Sierra is right around the corner and offering eGPU support. Once High Sierra is out, everyone will be all over Nvidia about a new driver anyway, so why focus on Sierra when it's end is near?

Now it just raises the question of, do we keep running the 1060 hoping they will fix it, or do we abandon it now for something else. My 1060 is back in its box ready to ship back to Amazon. I am considering downgrading to a 760, but now I am considering putting it back in and dealing with the glitch for the better performance. I likely won't upgrade to High Sierra for a long time anyway, so I am thinking about what's going to work best with Sierra for at least another year. The 760 seems to be a better candidate, but then when I do upgrade the OS, chances are the 1060 will be supported. It's quite a pickle.

Since this is the only problem I've found...well, I can live with it knowing that it will be fixed eventually. I rarely sleep my system, and, when I do, the GTX1060-FIX script is easy to execute from the Desktop.

I agree about it being reasonable, the problem isn't that big since it is a quick fix. I asked a question a few posts back that hasn't been answered, maybe you have the answer? Do you know if the fix works if you run the script right away at every wake before the glitch starts to happen? I want to try it, but the GPU is packed up and I have Intel graphics enabled already. There are a few applications that will run scripts on sleep/wake events. If that would allow the fix to run automatically and just make waking take a little longer, it might be good enough for me to keep it.

You seem confident this will be fixed eventually, are you assuming it will be fixed in Sierra, or future OS updates?

I'm not that quick when I wake up the system. However, I work thru the glitching as I know where it is on the Desktop.

Well, the last driver update was May 16. So, I'm confident that it will be fixed in the next driver release. 10.12.6 will probably be released at the end of June so Nvidia will release an updated driver shortly thereafter. But, they could have it in the High Sierra beta driver release when it comes out. So, we're in a "Hurry Up and Wait" state.

Ok, I guess I'll be the guinea pig and install the 1060 again to see if the fix can be automated on wake. There are 3 applications that could do it. Scenario $5, Power Management $50, or Sleepwatcher, a free command line tool. You can assume which one I'll be trying first if the manual test works. I'll report back soon.

I unpacked the 1060 that was ready to be sent back, reinstalled it and tried the quick fix. My suspicion was correct. Using the sleep display fix immediately after waking did not prevent the glitch from happening. Ugh! Now I just have to decide if I want to wait for a fix or replace the GPU.
