In my experience, I often get the black screen as you describe with NOTHING on the screen, absolutely no terminal-like cursor. Once, out of frustration while rebooting to try and get to the login screen, I put it down without turning it off. When I came back to it several minutes later, I tapped the trackpad, the mouse moved, and there was the login! I haven't sat down and timed it yet, but after 10-15m, my black screen will be the full desktop. It has done this whether I left the lid open or closed. Now, if I don't get the login the first or second try, I just put it down and come back to it after a break.

I'm really hoping that once the hardware support is solidified in mainline, we'll see this behavior stop.

It would also be worth checking to see if the HDMI output has anything when this behavior occurs.  I'll try to do that the next time it happens.

Since mainline kept bringing in more and more of this hardware, I keep intending to dig out the HDMI adapter I stumbled into years ago (that will only work with this one device I own, HA) but keep forgetting or deprioritizing it. Let us know your results!
