Hello guys, have a good day.

I've bought a Samsung 24CRG5 (known as LC24RG50FQMXUF in Turkey) and connected it to my graphics card HDMI output with its original HDMI cable.
But the problem is if I turn off monitor from its jog button while PC is up and running, it won't turn on again. Same for Windows sleep mode. HDMI warning flashes on the left top of screen and there is no image. I have to restart my PC then it works again.

I've tried different HDMI ports, resetting monitor settings, uninstalling and reinstalling NVIDIA drivers, changing power plan settings, I even reinstalled Windows. None of these worked. But then I turned off FreeSync from monitor's menu and it worked like a charm. But of course there is a huge tearing without FreeSync enabled. If I buy a DP 1.2 cable and connect my monitor with it, will the problem go away?

My system specs:
Intel i5-8500
MSI B360M PRO-VH
MSI GAMING X GTX 1060 6G
G.Skill 2x8 DDR4 2400MHz
SanDisk SSD Plus 480GB
Cougar STX700W 80+
