I have recently received my G9 Neo and I am having an issue with what seems like a basic feature.
My laptop connects via HDMI and PC via DP. If I power up the 2nd device while the first is on, the screen switches inputs fine. If I power one off, then power the 2nd up the screen stays in sleep. I need to press the power button, then go via the menu to switch inputs (and the input is green so it knows something is there).
This is something I've never had a problem with on any monitor with multiple inputs, what am I missing? I've tried with Auto Source Switch+ turned off and on and that seems to make no difference with my issue.
A Samsung support "expert" suggested I should really only have one thing connected to the monitor so I don't hold much hope with that avenue of help.

Same issue here, how hard is it to remember the last display and switch when a new display is plugged in ***** My laptop plugs in and nothing changes with auto switch on and the previous computer asleep. It’s infuriating as the menu / display is partially unresponsive for a minute.

The Neo G9 is one of the quirkiest, most nonfunctional high end monitor I have ever owned. For the price tag you would think it would do your laundry for you but it has many MANY MANY problems to the point I do not recommend it to anyone who asks. Autoswitch is just one example.
When I think of autoswitch, as with most mid-range or high end monitors, I think of a multi input situation where one or more inputs are active, one goes in active and the monitor will AUTOSWITCH to the active inputs for example I have my laptop and desktop plugged in, I shut down my laptop and the monitor automatically switches over to the other active input. On the neo g9, in a fit of utter stupidity in terms of implementation, the monitor simply goes to sleep... worst yet, it kills the negotiation with the other input and the other device believes the monitor has been disconnected.... what Einstein came up with this is beyond me.
LG does it correctly, Asus monitors work fine in a multi-input situation, Samsung monitors are completely useless in this function. They should just remove the "autoswitch" option in the menu, IT DOES NOTHING!
