App positions moving to primary monitor when Windows locks. It worked on another machine

I had a Windows 7 machine which had some triggers setup to preserve the icons and window position. It worked fine for years. I got a new Windows 10 machine and I restored the DisplayFusion settings from the Windows 7 machine. The Windows 10 machine sleeps at 20 minutes. When I unlock the machine, I noticed all the apps from secodary monitor moved to the primary one.

I have a 'Save Windows Positions' trigger set to System Idle event at 54 Idle Timeout. I have a 'Move to 2nd window' trigger set ato 'Monitor Profile Changed' event. I can't remember what this triggers does. Move what to 2nd window? What is 2nd window? 2nd monitor? It's not clear.

Anyway, I am not sure why the same settings are not working on the new machine. It's teh same monitors and cables. Just the laptop and OS were changed and I restored the settings. Windows sleep is set to 20 minutes. The 54 seconds for the save trigger should happen multiple times before the sleep kicks in. Using default profile.

I also have two trigger on function 'Load Desktop Icon Profile' I assume these are to restore the desktop icons.

It seems I am missing something but not sure what. What's the trigger or thing that loads the window positions that were saved in the save trigger?

Could you send me a copy of the Settings backup so that I can have a look at the Trigger rules you have setup?

You can attach it in a reply here :)

You can export them with the Export Settings button on the DisplayFusion Settings > Options tab.

Thanks!

Yep! When you attach the file, there's a "Protect these attachments" checkbox. If that's enabled, only Binary Fortress staff can download them.

Thanks!

Thanks! Could you try changing the "Monitor Profile Changed" Trigger to run "Run Function: Restore Window Positions from Last Save"?
