Computer won't fall asleep with dual monitor setup


Hello,

I recently added a second monitor to my setup, and ever since, I am unable to put the computer to sleep. If I try, both monitors will turn off, but the computer will still be running. I then have to turn off the computer manually.

~If I boot with one monitor connected, I can put the computer to sleep
~If I connect the second monitor after boot, I can put the computer to sleep
~If I boot with both monitors connected, I can't put the computer to sleep.

Nothing I've found online fixes my problem.

As I am relatively new to Linux, I am not sure what specs to share to help with troubleshooting.
