Given that that log contains no (EE) errors, switching to a different DE might
be a solution.
That log also reports the modeset(0) driver is in use. It's possible that the
Intel driver would work better. If you wish to try the Intel driver and
dpkg -l | grep intel
does not return
apt install xserver-xorg-video-intel
cp /usr/share/doc/xserver-xorg-video-intel/xorg.conf /etc/X11
followed by login manager restart or reboot. Then report results and provide
Xorg.0.log on https://paste.debian.net again if not a satisfactory improvement.
Also if not improved, do
journalctl | grep failed
and post that result here if fairly short, or on https://paste.debian.net/ if
Also, try a different WM/DE, as this problem could be limited to Gnome. FWIW, I
use TDE on Stretch, installed via these instructions:
"The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant
words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
