Please disable CFG Lock and try either the latest Clover or OpenCore EFI from post #1.

There's too much I need to fix in your EFI and it would just end up being what's on post #1 anyway...

ok! thanks. CFG is disabled. I'm on F9k. If I update clover to the latest it won't boot anymore. And I have to use the usb to boot again. And copy the EFI folder from the usb, or just de EFI drivers and replace them on my ssd efi drive.

Try booting from the EFI on post #1. If you encounter problems, boot in verbose mode and post a picture of where it stops.

You can also try OpenCore EFI.

Looks like one of them doesn't have DVI-D.

Edit:
Since you are buying from Amazon, I'd try the cheaper one first and return it if it doesn't work. There's too big of a price difference...

Yup, that's what I noticed too. That is quite a price hike.

I don't know if this is happening to you, but right here with Opencore 0.6.0 and Clover 5120, both from @pastrychef , when macOS goes to standby for not using it, I move the mouse or something on the keyboard, the system takes a long time to return, and the screen is flashing several times and then the image comes back and I can enter my password.
Other times he doesn't come back and I have to manually restart.

Mine wakes up fine.

Are you using HDMI?
