Using MacBook Pro with external screen

  Clementine 22:26 28 Jul 2017

I have my MBP connected to an Acer 24in screen that was purchased a couple of months ago. The set up works fine. However, when waking the screen from sleep it can take up to 10 seconds before the MBP connects and displays. This is so different to running the MBP stand alone when lifting the lid or touching a key immediately displays the screen. Can I do anything about this or is it a common time lag when using an external display?
