T460 no built in display (intermittent)

Sometimes my T460 loses it's built in display (FHD). It happens when coming out of sleep mode, when powering the laptop on, or once, when unplugging the laptop. Often it can be fixed by rebooting the laptop with an HDMI cable attached, but this hasn't always worked.

 

External displays always work, and sometimes the internal display is still recognised in windows (but doesn't display anything) and othertimes it's completely absent and the external monitor is the only recognised display.

 

Has anyone else encountered this and got reliable fixes or work arounds?

And after posting this, it came back after I unplugged both the power cable and the external monitor, despite having unplugged and re-plugged both already.

I have since stopped using the HDMI port and have been using MiniDP instead and have not had this issue recurr.
