    I have my Surface 4 configured to turn off the screen after 5 minutes.

    My setup:
    • Surface 4 Pro
    • Surface 4 dock (brick style)
    • Belkin Mini Displayport to HDMI adapter
    • Asus VE247 Monitor - 1920 x 1080, 23.6"
    • When docked, I use only my monitor.
    When the screen turns off after 5 minutes, the monitor doesn't turn off. It tries to turn off, but something wakes it up immediately. Then it will show "no signal" and goes back to off. And this repeats. I have uploaded a video of the problem here.

    When I connect the Belkin adapter directly to the tablet, it works fine. Only when it is connected to the dock, the problem appears. Anybody else facing this issue?
