Second monitor disabled upon unplug/plug in

Using KDE Neon with an NVIDIA card and a dual monitor setup. When I plug in the monitor to another computer and plug it back again, it stays black. I then have to go to System Settings - Display Configuration and use the Device dropdown (monitor is hidden behind first one) to set it to Enabled and Primary again. This process has to be repeated for every time I use my HDMI switch. I think the usability is really problematic as the monitor stays back by default and you think it is broken. I tried disabling KScreen, configuring with xorg.conf or the NVIDIA utility, but couldn't find a solution/workaround that works with KDE Neon. This does not happen on a laptop with an integrated NVIDIA card running Tuxedo OS, which uses an older version of KDE.
