    Maybe the dock, I don't know. Mine is attached directly. Besides no waking the Monitor up after Sleep, during regular usage it also sometimes goes blank for a few seconds before the image comes back.

    Had exactly these problems after purchasing my XPS 13 in 2016.
    With new BIOS & Thunderbolt Firmware updates the screens work always fine.
    I'd try to update all drivers and then another USB-C to HDMI adapter if it still doesn't work.

    So it seems a firmware can be forced installed with the admin cmd option /f ... But if I understand correctly 26 is taken down? But the now 16 is still newer than the first 16? Maybe I can force that one.

    Did you test this? Wonder what it does with battery life.

    Yes I did and it's perfectly working.

    I can't tell about battery life but it should change a lot. It's much more comfortable anyway.

    According to notebookcheck (they tried on the new xps 13), the battery life decreases for like 5-10%. I think it's worth. Just lower the general brightness if you want better battery. At least it'll be up to you, unlike with CABC.
