External monitors won't wake, even when after computer wakes Dell XPS 13 Intel 11th gen with ‎TBT3-UDC1

I have 2 external monitors both connected to the TBT3-UDC1 using the provided cables. The monitors worked fine when I first plugged them in to my Dell XPS 13 (Intel 11th Gen). I keep the laptop in a closed position. However, when the computer falls a sleep for an extended period of time, and then the laptop wakes up - the monitors will not wake. I have tried un-plugging and re-plugging the monitors, and the thunderbolt connection to the laptop, which did not solve the issue. The only thing that solves the issue is completely rebooting the computer. Is there a way for the computer to fall a sleep and automatically wake up the external monitors? Thank you :slight_smile:
