Losing track of displays on sleep

Hi folks. I have an eGPU setup I'm pretty happy with: a 16-inch MBP, Razer X, Radeon RX 580, and an HP 27f 4k display.

This setup works pretty consistently if I use an HDMI cable to connect my monitor to the graphics card, but I only get 30Hz refresh rate. If I use DisplayPort to connect to the graphics card, I get 60Hz—much better! But after the computer goes to sleep, when it wakes up, the graphics card stops sending input to the monitor.

Has anyone hit this problem before? Is there a way to get the card to send a consistent signal over DisplayPort, or to send 60Hz via HDMI?


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