I am totally baffled. If the client restarts his computer and the lid of the laptop (connected via HDMI) is closed, the Dell monitor that the laptop is connected to just hangs at the Dell logo. If we restart with the lid open, and the screen does not display on the monitor, it boots up fine. Dell monitor is connected via HDMI to a Dell laptop that is only about a year old. Client rarely shuts down so mainly notices when the computer restarts after an update. Only change in system occurred in March when Win 11 was installed, but client only reported the issue this week (June 21).
