Question LG 27GL850 is slow to wake from sleep when DisplayPort 1.4 is active ?

I can't seem to find a resolution for this anywhere, so I figured I would post...

I've had the ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q for the longest time, but finally got annoyed at the weird settings the would blow out the image, so I figured I would 'upgrade' to a monitor with HDR.

I picked up the LG 27GL850 and despite some weird menu lock-outs that disable Contrast, Color Temp, Black Level, etc when HDR is enabled, I like the monitor.

Well, I lied - the thing that bothers me the most is how long it takes to wake from sleep. The PG279 was instantaneous, but the 27GL850 takes anywhere from 5-10 seconds. I know it's first-world problems but it's annoying.

I then discovered that if I disable Displayport 1.4, the LG 27GL850 wakes up instantly, but it disables HDR ?

Is there any way around this? Some setting I'm missing somewhere? Firmware update?

Thanks in advance!
