I have a SP3 with dock and chaining via two Dell U2414H monitors and have also had some issues with waking up from sleep. I've had most luck with shutting down the SP3 and booting it back up each morning. Or at least undocking at the end of the day, then re-docking and pressing the power button - that seems to bring it back to life with reliability.
For a couple of other users at my office that have monitors that don't support chaining, I purchased these:
And then purchased DP to DVI adapters to get dual monitors out of the single Mini-DP connector out of the back of the docking station. I haven't received any complaints, but I don't know if they are putting their SP3s into sleep mode and trying to wake them up, or just shutting down at the end of the day.
