Default MacBook Air 2023 vs DisplayLink 1.9

Using a new MacBook Air, running MacOC 13.6, I've connected to two external HDMI monitors (Dell E2720Hs) using a WAVLink Displaylink Docking Station - DisplayLink seems to quit when the computer goes to sleep.

When I wake the computer, the Dell monitors remain in "Power Saver" mode and will not wake or connect to the . Sleep, power saving and screen saver settings have all been turned off on the Mac...but the only resolve (to date) is to Uninstall DisplayLink then re-install to get the system back on two displays. It doesn't seem to matter how I set DisplayLink settings or even if I load the startup executable.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Are you using clamshell mode, i.e MacBook powered and external keyboard and mouse connected..?

Does the wavelink supply power to the Mac via its host connection..?

I use an M2 15" Air daily using DisplayLink dock and have no issues

Wavlink does supply power.
Clamshell mode i did not have setup, and just googled it. I'll apply the settings as soon as the OS updates and hope this works and respond.

Thank you!

That didn't work. It is set to never turn off, and two minutes after i closed the shell, it turned off

Also, I had a new symptom. When the clamshell is open (now i technically have 3 screens). I walked into another room and came back, and the 2 monitors shut off. Displaylink shut down (it wasn't in the top right corner where my other active apps are). It even shuts off when i am typing. Displaylink shuts down and i have to turn it back on
