One more way to somewaht avoid powermizer bug
Recently bought a laptop with a quadro nvs 160m, just to find the screen blinking problem and noticed only happens in level 0. After unsuccessfuly trying some tips found around, this is how managed to get rid of the flicker without forcing always level 3.
After logging in, in nvidia settings change screen refresh rate (changing in .conf seems have no use, it must be toggled once when already in graphics mode). xrandr doesnt seem to allow this, nor found a way to automatize with nivida-settings either, so must be clicked manually everytime.
After this, seems triggers another interesting bug, which prevents the graphics card from entering level 0.
It ranges from 1 to 3, going through 2, but never goes back to 0, so flicker is solved.
Not sure if anyone from nvidia even reads this forum, but posted the trick in case it can be of use to someone.
Updated: Installed 177.82 from nvidia installer, and flicker seems gone, seems package provided one wasn't up to date
