RX 480 Random Black Screen on Idle Desktop

I am getting random black screens on my idle desktop with my Powercolor RX 480 8GB reference.

It happens every 2-10 mins. The computer is still running, so if I put it to sleep and wake it back up, it works until it gets black screen again.

When I run a game in the background, it does not go black. Hence I assume it is related with the graphic card's idle state.

I am seeing many others with RX 480 having similar issue. I am also getting the mouse cursor that this guy is getting Multiple Problems With RX 480

Will AMD address this?
