I have a Surface Book 2 Windows 11 connected to external display using HDMI to Type C (male-to-male) cable.
I'm using it in extend mode.

When I lock the system and log back in after, the exposure of the external display increases on its own.
The grays become white and all-in-all it gets too bright.

The brightness of the laptop is fine.

I have to disconnect and connect again to fix the issue.

I'm using Samsung monitor model LC27F390FHWXXL.

Is there anything I can do to fix this?
