Q4OS stops using external monitor if I switch off the monitor's power


Happy Q4OS user here.  Running Q4OS version 4.11 on a ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2nd generation (released in 2014). Connected to external monitor.

If I power off the external monitor, Q4OS stops using it.  And even when I turn it back on, it doesn't use it.  It doesn't move the windows to the laptop, they just disappear.  I have to reboot the laptop to get it usable again.

Is there some way to get it to resume using the external monitor when it turns back on?

Same thing happens when I unplug the monitor cable (DisplayPort).
