What do I do for a laptop display that takes forever to "wake up"?

My 2018 Lenovo Flex 5 15 2-IN-1 Laptop: 15.6" IPS Touchscreen Full HD (1920x1080) goes to sleep after one hour, but lately I am having trouble getting the display to start up. Note: I have as SSD Drive. I keep the lid open all the time, as I use it frequently.

I confess I'm not good with operating laptops, as I only recently acquired this model. For instance, I don't know if I should close the lid when I leave it. Right now I leave it open at all times.

In the control panel there are settings for defining the power button but I'm not sure what settings I should use. I have the computer set to go to sleep after 5 hours, and the display after 1 hour. But there are other power settings as pictured in the attached image.

When I try to turn on the display by clicking the mouse or pressing the display bar, I have to repeat these actions many times before the device turns on.

Please help. Thanks in advance.
