After installing the proprietary NVIDIA driver (384) I've been faced
with a black screen after reboot. It turned out, that when I moved the
mouse, the login screen appeared. The screen goes black immediately when
I stop moving the mouse. I can normally put the password in on the black
screen and go on with my life, but, you know, it doesn't look stable :)

After I get the system up from sleeping (which didn't work earlier but
suddenly started working) the log in screen in displayed normally.

My system (Alienware 15 R3) has Intel's i7-7820HK and NVIDIA's GeForce
GTX 1070 Mobile 8GB

 Your system is not currently configured to drive a VGA console
 on the primary VGA device. The NVIDIA Linux graphics driver
 requires the use of a text-mode VGA console. Use of other console
 drivers including, but not limited to, vesafb, may result in
 corruption and stability problems, and is not supported.
