acer predator monitor problems with input and lights

when I turn on my acer predator monitor the input sometimes changes to DP instead of the HDMI 2 (which what i normally use) will turning off the auto source fix that? and I notice the lights don't turn on right away, sometimes takes a few minutes then it turns of by itself, fans run and everything it's just the lights lag.

    @Calisoul if you only use HDMI 2, then turn off the auto source should fix the changing inputs problem.

    Please remember to include @AnhEZ28 when you want to reply back to my comment so that I can check your response.
    Thank you and have a nice day!

    Probably just taking a while for the monitor to finish booting.
