Gnome 40 - Monitors keep turning off and on

I switched to Gnome 40 today, and I have this weird issue where monitors would turn on and off. I have a triple monitor setup (well 4, but one is disabled, don't know if that's relevant). Anybody having same issue?

my inxi output:

That is not how it works. Provide more information your original thread then it will be moved back.

Welcome to Garuda Though! Enjoy Your Time Here!

(Also I don't beleive this a problem with Garuda but rather GNOME 40 - A bug report on GNOME is a better response)

If that happens then there's a reason for it, therefore changing your posting strategy is going to be more fruitful than posting duplicate threads.
