Xorg video issues
X server didn't start properly with Nvidia drivers installed by pacman. I use one downloaded fron Nvidia web. Then I installed them by running downloaded script. After thet, the Xserver runs just fine.
Suspend to RAM
While using KDE, suspending uses pm-utils. Because of USB-3 ports it's necessary to unload module xhci_hcd before suspend. This can be done by following steps.
# cp /usr/lib/pm-utils/defaults /etc/pm/config.d/defaults
Then edit the file in /etc/pm/config.d/defaults with SUSPEND_MODULES="xhci_hcd"
