I don't see any way to change it. Would it matter if I enabled DP 1.2 on the monitor that is working?
DisplayPort 1.2 shouldn't matter. The resolution you are using doesn't require it.

What I'm wondering is if the iGPU can handle the 2 monitors?

It should be able to handle two monitors especially with low resolutions like you are using...

1920x1200x2 = 4,608,000 pixels. That's about half the number of pixels as a single 4K monitor.
3760x2160 = 8,337,600 pixes.

I have no idea what's causing your wake problems...

Does it have problems waking with just one monitor?

Just put my nVidia card back in and going back to 10.13 (need dual monitors to work). However, when I plug monitors into my nVidia card, I get a black screen. Any help appreciated. I went and disabled iGPU Multi-Monitor in BIOS. Anything else in the BIOS that may be affecting this? Thanks.

Just installed my GTX 950 and 10.13.6 and all updates. Then installed nvidia drivers and updated clover to latest version. Now when booting, I get black screen after clover. Nvidia web drivers option is checked in Clover. @pastrychef, Help appreciated.
