Thank you for contacting the Intel® Communities.
This is a known situation with Display Port.
Not being able to wake from sleep while using Display Port has been an issue for a while now.
Have you tried using a different interfase in the NUC to connect your monitor (Mini-HDMI 1.4a)?
Also, you could check this thread that has the same theme.
I have struggled for a while earlier to get HDMI to work: Bought different cables, tried other graphics drivers, upgraded BIOS etc., only to give up using HDMI. Seems to be due to Intels use of an ancient 1.4a HDMI technology. DP seems to be the least crippled way to get a display of of your alpha product, so guess I have to live with it as it is.
I tend to think that it's the monitor problem, not NUC itself. I have 5i3RYH (i.e. of the same generation of NUCs) model on my own and it works with the display connected via DP quite correctly
Hello Esteban C,
I am also having a problem with the HDMI connection not waking the monitor after a long off period, usually overnight.
My monitor is Acer T232HL using HDMI cable direct from NUC5i7RYH. Waking the monitor works fine after short periods of being off (1-2 hours), however, after long periods (8-10 hours) the monitor will not wake. The only way I have figured out to get the NUC working with the monitor is to hold the NUC power button until the computer shuts down and then reboot.
I have the NUC setup to shutdown the monitor after 5 minutes and to never go to sleep.
Edit: I have restored my system to Win 8.1 and no longer have this problem with the HDMI connection. Must be an issue with Win 10.
Thank you for that additional information about the OS.
Let me perform some tests with Windows 8.1*.
Also, in order to perform the most accurate tests, please provide me with your system configuration:

Edit 2/28/16: I have returned to Win10 and now have to turn monitor off when not using the computer as a work-around to this problem.
Thank you for the information provided.
Let me do my test on my end.
I will be providing you with my outcome.
