  1. Waking Laptop When USB-C Monitor is plugged in


    Set-up: Dell XPS 13 9370, LG 27UD88-W, Surface keyboard and logitech Mx2 anywhere mouse.


    I'd like my laptop to wake from sleep when I plug it into my monitor. I use a USB-C cable. It seems like this would be a pretty standard feature. I need to open the laptop, wake it from sleep, plug it into the monitor and close the lid.


    I've searched around and haven't been able to find solutions. Is this for the laptop to wake from sleep when I plug it in?


    Thank you to anyone who can help!

    :)

    Laptop display and monitor will not wake when HDMI cable plugged into laptop.

    I have a laptop. Lenovo ideapad FLEX 4-1480 Signature Edition.

    The laptop has a display, and the laptop is connected to a monitor via an HDMI cable.

    Sleep mode is disabled.

    Screen timeout is enabled.

    I lock the computer. The laptop display and monitor both eventually deactivate.

    I move the mouse and press keys to wake the monitor. Nothing happens on either the laptop display or the monitor.

    If the HDMI cable is not plugged into the laptop, the laptop display will wake as intended. The problem happens only when the HDMI cable is plugged into the laptop.

    I have to remove the HDMI cable from the laptop, wait a few seconds, reinsert it, then the laptop display and monitor will wake. Again, the laptop display will wake just fine when the HDMI cable is not plugged in.

    Plug and play USB C monitor not working on laptop

    Hi,

    I have just purchased a portable monitor which connects via USB C to my HP ProBook laptop.

    When I plug the USB in I get a message saying "Try improving the USB connection - DisplayPort connection might not work. Try using a different cable."

    I've replaced the cable - no different. I've also tried a USB A to USB C but I get the same message.

    I'm running Windows 10 and have heard that sometimes there is an issue with this system and some monitors?

    I've tried running diagnostics and everything is working properly apparently.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks
