Levelone KVM and pop OS issue

Laptop(windows) and desktop(linux) both hooked up to the KVM, both work but linux will not switch back after switching to my laptop, it stays black and I have to plug it directly into my monitor or restart the desktop and when starting up it comes up.

Seems like linux is not seeing the wake up signal for the display even when i move the mouse but only when its going through the KVM.
I checked the ports are working by swapping them around and they all work fine with the laptop.

Everything worked fine when I first installed but some update to my display driver or pop OS has broken things in this weird way.

It was not the KVM it was the Pop OS NVIDIA driver. I just swapped to a previous version and the issue was fixed.

Hope that helps anyone else with this issue.
