screen not recognized when laptop wakes up from suspend

With my laptop, I have been using xfce happily for many years.  But one thing bothers me: At home the laptop is connected to an external monitor and the internal monitor is then disabled. Then, when I need to work elsewhere, I may unplug the monitor while the laptop is suspended. When I then wake up the laptop and unlock the screen, the session often (not always!) has a black screen.  As a workaround, I have bound `xrandr --auto' to a key which will enable the internal monitor of the laptop.  But I guess there must be a better solution for this.  I have not yet been able to identify a reproducible scheme for when I need this workaround and when it is not needed.

This is a laptop running debian bookworm which uses, I believe xfce 4.18.  Previously, with debian buster, often (not always!) it was worse: after unlocking the screen, my old session was terminated and I had to start a new session.

Please, let me know if this is a known issue or whether you need further details.
