The external screens are working as expected when the laptop is open. HOWEVER, there is an issue when I close the laptop screen (clam shell mode).

With the laptop screen closed, the external monitors stay on for ~10 seconds before going to sleep. The monitors turn back on after clicking my USB connected mouse a few times.

Any ideas on how to stop this issue??
Clamshell mode is not supported on Intel-based Macs running DisplayLink Application Manager 1.3.1. DisplayLink speaks to this in their knowledge base article here -->
