If I have monitors connected to my laptop and I close the lid on my laptop and then re-open the lid, then all screens become black and I have to reboot the computer.

How can I fix this?

I am using the i3 window manager with Debian 9. (I have 2 monitors connected to my laptop)


Alt+F2 gnome-terminal will open a new terminal window. From there, do startx to restart your GUI.
