Black Screen after reboot/sleep?

Hi all, I recently moved my eGPU setup (2060 super/Razer Core) from my MacBook Pro/external display to my new iMac using the internal display.  This works well, however, under the following circumstances I get a black screen and, as best I can tell, only a forced reboot fixes it (and the eGpu needs to be turned off):

 

  1. If egpu is plugged in and on.
  2. If windows goes to sleep.

Not sure if this is a bootcamp specific issue.  Googling brings up a similar question but the posts are older.  Any workaround/fix for this?

It's not a major issue, since I just need to make sure the eGPU is off/on at the right time but would be good to fix if possible.

Thanks in advance. 

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

@michael_mifsud, Which version of Windows is installed on your Bootcamp installation?

@solomani, So, no error 12 on your 2020 iMac with Windows 20H2.

Nice 😎

Are you running Big Sur?

It looks like waking up to a black screen is a Windows issue, not related to eGPUs or Bootcamp.

@mini-i5, correct, no error (so far).  It’s a 2019 iMac but yeah much for muchness in terms of egpu. Thanks for confirming about the black screen.
