You have a mini Display Port (mDP) connector and can use that. There are mDP-to-HDMI, mDP-to-DVI and mDP-to-VGA adapters thar you can use where necessary.
Unplugging the battery is a horrible idea. Why don't you just fix the cause of the wakeups? It can definitely be done...
Hope this helps,

Hello Nukles ,
I am sorry to hear you had this issue with the HDMI port!
Have you checked the possible warranty options available for you?
If not available, you can still follow Scott's recommendation to use the DP connection + adapters.
What have you done besides removing the battery to troubleshoot the wake-up issue?
