I don't know if it makes a difference, but there is a new BIOS firmware update out now for the Companion 2 (through Wacom Desktop Center). I suggest to try that.

Thanks a lot, I will try this !
for a few days it bugged just slightly but now the screen flickers in black, unlike before where it was just turning off, now there is no fan going at full speed but just the screen turning on and off frantically.

Just as an update, the bios update solved the issue that the companion needed to be manually put to sleep to switch to hybrid mode, now when the cable is connected the switch is automatic.
every day between 6pm and 6:30pm there is still some hardly noticeable events, like a light click and the fan speeding up, but only 5-10% of the time the tablet goes berzerk and turn off while fan max speeds.

Ok so posting another update today, at 6:08pm, it did the full disconnection, twice, for the first time, so once I reconnected the companion with the hybrid cable, a few seconds later the screen went black a second time (heavy click sound + fan max speed as usual with the black screen)
so it might getting worse after having been better the last months.

Still losing time and work every day because of this issue, re-installed windows and the hybrid mode doesn't launch by itself again, need to be put to sleep manually.

..no idea why but I think after 1 year and a half it stopped disconnecting everyday at 6pm. just disconnects sometimes on reconnection if the cable was connected with a certain timing like while it was turning on or something.
