Followup on this: the archlinux install uses gdm3, while debian was attempting to use sddm. sddm was crashing for some reason.
Bug report submitted to maintainer, and I'm using gdm3 or startx in the meantime, depending on my mood.

It looks like the "no sound without putting the computer to sleep or hard reboot after going from Windows10 to linux" is related to the Realtek ALC1220 chipset. The fix in the log posting below doesn't work for me, probably related to the latest kernel version I suppose. Anyways, it's a known problem with an annoying work around. When you get up and running again maybe you can see what chipset you have?
Any other solutions welcome too.
