NVENC breaks after suspend using an NVIDIA GPU

When I first installed OBS it worked perfectly, until I suspend my computer, then it stopped working. After a reboot it came back to work, and stopped again after another suspension.

That's a constant behavior: it stops working after every suspension, only works again after a reboot.

How to fix this error? Is it related to NVIDIA drivers?

OBS version: 29.1.3
OS: 22.04.2
GPU: GTX 970
GPU driver: nvidia-driver-535 (proprietary, tested)
CPU: Ryzen 5 1600 AF

as a solution so you don't have to reboot, you can unload and load again the nvidia_uvm module:
as root:
rmmod nvidia_uvm
modprobe nvidia_uvm
But there has to be a better fix
