usb-c monitor won't work after suspending at a docking station with other monitors

mu flag

My Lenovo Laptop E14 gen2 with AMD CPU and AMD GPU won't detect the USB-C monitor at home when I suspend it (to RAM) at work while being connected to a monitor through a docking station plugged into USB-C and another monitor connected through the HDMI port. A monitor plugged into the HDMI port is detected after unsuspend and works fine.

If I first unplug the docking station and the monitor at work and suspend and later unsuspend with nothing plugged in, everything works fine after plugging the USB-C monitor in at home.

The Laptop uses Ubuntu 22.04 with Wayland. The command inxi -Fxxz shows some modules are unloaded after unsuspend:

  Display: wayland server: v: with: Xwayland v: 22.1.1
    compositor: gnome-shell driver: X: loaded: amdgpu,ati
    unloaded: fbdev,modesetting,radeon,vesa gpu: amdgpu display-ID: 0

Any idea whether this can be avoided or recovered?

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
