External monitor is only detected after sleep.

HP Recommended
Zbook 15 G6
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, I noticed a strange problem with my zbook G6. I have connected an external monitor using a HDMI cable with my laptop. However, when I attach it after starting the laptop. However if I suspend/sleep my computer and then wake it up it detects the external monitor and works as expected. Initially I thought it is particular to one OS. However I have seen this for both ubuntu 20.04 and windows 10. I am using dual boot and the graphics is set to auto in BIOS. 

I have no idea what is happening.

Any help is appreciated 🙂

first troubleshooting step would be to run HP Image Assistant to update the BIOS and Windows drivers
