I've installed Elementary os Loki and when I resume it from suspend, the screen is completely black with this line:

tc_cmos 00:01: alarms can be up to one month in the future

I've searched for this without any solutions. I see here this same problem and a related idea with the "solution"( here ), but the problem hasn't been solved

My machine is an Asus Dual-Core i5-7200U 2.5Hz. Nvidia Geforce 920 Mx and my OS is Elementary Os 0.4.1 Loki built on "Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS"/Linux 4.10.0-40-generic GTK+3.18.9.

I'll appreciate your help and thank you.

I've not Elmentary OS but I had the same problem "alarms can be up to one month in the future" on Ubuntu Gnome 18.04 with Nvidia driver 396 and to solve this I use this Tuto : https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/969433 it works out of the box, if you have Nvidia Driver loaded.

Computer : Asus UX410UF i7-8550U - 16 Go RAM - Nvidia GeForce MX130 Ubuntu 18.04 - Gnome-shell 3.28.1
