Thinkpad X1 Extreme display occasionally "blinks"

I recently purchased a TP X1 Extreme, and love it, however, I have this strange intermittent problem:


I have an external monitor (1920x1080) and I'll be working along (doesn't seem tied to an app), when all of a sudden then screen goes black for 3 - 5 seconds, then returns.


Doesn't happen continuously, just once, then it goes away for some period of time - maybe up to a few hours, then it happens again.


Seems to have gotten better with a recent BIOS update, but still happens.


I have the same issue at work, where I have a TP P52 mobile workstation, but it happens much less often (like maybe once every couple of weeks).


Any ideas? I have been using the Lenovo Support Bridge to keep the system up-to-date on drivers and Windows updates.
