Automatically Save and Restore Window Positions on Sleep/Resume

Some types of HDMI monitors, and pretty much any DisplayPort monitor will be "disconnected" from the computer when powered off or entering sleep mode. This causes Windows to do a full display re-detection on sleep and resume, which has the nasty side effect of making all open application windows shuffle around. When returning to your computer, all of your carefully placed windows are now in random spots! DisplayFusion can help with this scenario by saving the window positions before the system sleeps, and restoring them when it wakes up. The steps below describe how to configure DisplayFusion to do this.

  1. On the Settings > Triggers tab, enable the "Enable Triggers" checkbox
  2. Click the Add button and setup a Trigger with the following settings:
    • Event: System Idle
    • Idle Timeout (sec): Set this to 1 minute less than the time configured for your monitors/system to sleep (i.e. if monitors are set to sleep after 10 minutes, set this to 540 seconds)
    • Action: Run Function > Save Window Positions
      Save Window Positions Trigger
  3. Click OK to save the Trigger rule.
  4. Click the Add button again, and setup a Trigger with the following settings:
    • Event: Desktop Unlocked
    • Action: Wait > 5000
    • Action: Run Function > Restore Window Positions from Last Save
      Restore Window Positions Trigger
  5. Click OK to save the Trigger rule.
  6. Click OK again to apply the DisplayFusion Settings.

Note: If your system is not set to lock on sleep or screen saver, the window positions won't be automatically restored when resuming from sleep or screen saver. You can still manually load the positions by assigning a key combination to the "Restore Window Positions from Last Save" function on the Settings > Functions tab.

As always, if you run into any issues, or have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask!

This is not working for me. When the screens wake up, all the windows which were in the secondary monitor move to the primary one.

The two triggers are enabled. My screens go to sleep after 10 minutes. I have tried idle timeouts of 540 and 60.

Is there a way to enable and view logging? Also a column like 'Last Run' indicating the last time the trigger ran would be helpful.

Also dragging a trigger doesn't work. I can't reorder triggers.

I turned on detailed logging. I see the taskbar notification when it saves the windows positions. However when the screens wake up, the windows have moved to the primary monitor. I can see the app icons in the secondary monitor for a split second then they go away. However this is a Windows behavior as I notice this without DisplayFusion being installed.

What to search for in the log file about Windows locations restorations? I see some entries which look like they are about windows moving.

Hi. This solution usually works for me if
1)Windows goes to sleep and locks by itself
2)I manually lock the desktop and unlock it before Windows sets my primary monitor to sleep

However, if I manually lock the desktop, then Windows goes to sleep, upon waking the positions are generally messed up.

This may have to do with my primary monitor (connected via DVI to AMD 290 video card) many times having to re-initialize after wake or power-off of monitor. Secondary monitor is connected via DVI to Intel onboard graphics (i7 4790K, not overclocked, Gigabyte Z97X Gaming-7 motherboard).

I am wondering if maybe Windows is setting my monitor to sleep earlier when the desktop is manually locked, before Displayfusion saves positions, and thus is saving an invalid set of positions where everything has been moved to my secondary monitor. The positions are thus either invalid or ignored when trying to restore after I have re-enabled my primary monitor.

I wonder if there is a way to have Displayfusion conditionally save window positions either on desktop lock or after the idle period, whichever happens first. I already have a second trigger to save positions on desktop lock, but this seems to get overwritten later on.

Thanks!

It isn't currently possible to have a combination of events for the same trigger like that. If you disable the Timer trigger and just use the Desktop Locked trigger, does that work correctly?

Hey Keith! Been a while since I've been on but had a question about this function.

How can this function be triggered by a similar power condition, in my case manual powering off external HDMI monitor connected to laptop does the following:

1. Power off monitor 1
2. Close laptop lid (does NOT sleep but set to "power off" monitor 0 (built in display) only)

Upon wakeup:

3. Open lid - laptop for a moment begins reconfig desktop thinking it is now in single monitor (builtin) mode as I reach to power on monitor 1.
4. Power on external HDMI monitor 1
5. Displayfusion after about 10 sec then becomes visible again on mon0 (builtin) acting as the secondary displayfusion taskbar monitor - this is ok
6. All window positions are now back to external monitor 1 (set as primary).

Desired action is (like this function) to basically as the end of step 4 above (external monitor power button) trigger the saved window restore and perhaps icon profile.

Given the above workflow, what would that trigger list look like and does it require any custom functions? I'm thinking nothing custom needed but perhaps I'm wrong but stuck on what even needs to trigger here.

Thanks!

Collin

@Collin: Using the docked/undocked guide should do the trick: https://www.displayfusion.com/Discussions/View/automatically-saving-and-restoring-window-positions-on-dockundock/?ID=5540c67a-5e2b-4f41-b88c-de4d9c2fa354.

Make sure to update to 8.1 Beta 2 (https://www.displayfusion.com/Download/Beta) before trying those steps though, there was a bug in 8.0 that prevents it from working fully

Hello

Can you give me more information about this ?
"Note: If your system is not set to lock on sleep or screen saver, the window positions won't be automatically restored when resuming from sleep or screen saver."

How to do that ?

I set the screen saver to "none", the wait timer to 1 minute, and check the box that says "On resume display logon screen".

But windows positions are not restored, i still need to manually load the positions

thx

Sorry for the LONG delay in responding. I never had the patience to test this out systematically, as the behavior seems to me to differ slightly based on whether the system goes to sleep on its own or I just lock the desktop, or maybe even if I send it to sleep manually. Thus I've just been using the computer normally, and data points come very slowly.

It does seem to work better with only the Desktop Locked trigger to save positions. Having both active seems to muck things up.

I have it set up to restore positions both on Desktop Unlock and system wake. I am not sure which one is the one that is actually working, but I'm too lazy to thoroughly test and just keep both of them active.

Every now and then it doesn't work, but it's very infrequent, to the point I can't remember exactly was the last time it failed.

Hey Keith,

just downloaded the trial, configured the triggers, set monitor sleep to 2 minutes and the trigger to 1 minute with a maximized testwindow on monitor 2 (2 monitor setup, windows 10 x64). Woke it up again and after logging in, the test window is shown minimized in the taskbar of monitor 2 for approximately the 5000ms set in the second trigger. After that it is moved minimized to monitor 1.

Regrettably i can not send you the configuration because for some reason after reinstalling DF my trial is expired and i can not create triggers

I've followed the instructions here and even set a hotkey to restore windows but still every time my DP monitor goes to sleep the windows resume all over the other monitors causing a mess. Please how can I fix this or can you review the logs privately to see what the issue is?

These are the triggers I have enabled. The system idle function does not work at all, so I've tried the hotkey to restore. It restores 80% of the windows, but there area always some that end up in wierd sizes and out of place. Is there any solution that can fix this problem 100%?

Unfortunately saving/restoring window positions is a tricky feature to get 100% right for every single application. Some applications do weird things with their windows and window styles. Can you make a note of which applications aren't restoring correctly so that I can test them out here to see if there's anything we can do?

Ok, thanks! If you manually save the positions, just move those windows a bit with the mouse, then manually restore, do they go back to the correct spots?

I see the part where I can assign a key to save windows positions. So, I must do this BEFORE the screen goes to sleep? Does this hotkey save all window positions? So if I understand correctly:

1. Displayfusion will automatically save my windows positions before screen sleep using the trigger I set from the instructions in this page
2. When it awakes from sleep I press the restore window positions from last save
3. Since edge/calculator/explorer don't save properly I should use the "save windows positions" hotkey BEFORE step 1 and then try it after step 2 when they ultimately dont restore correctly?

Thank you

Sorry, I'll try to clarify further. Just as a test, to see if the issue is with the save/restore functions themselves, or with the triggers, can you do exactly this?
  • Run the Save Function via hotkey
  • Drag (using the mouse) some of the windows that don't restore properly with the triggers (Edge, etc)
  • Run the Restore Function via hotkey
  • Does it restore the positions correctly?

Also when you say restore fuction. Is it restore window or restore windows position from last save?

I Currently have restore window positions from last save and that is what restores 80% of my windows but leaves 20% messed up

Does save window position use a lot of resources? Can we set the timeout at much lower interval, like 5 seconds or less? Cause I normally don't let computer go automatically to sleep, I press the power button when I'm done.. Having timeout that high doesn't sound right to me..

After an hour or two of research this was the only software I could find that was capable of fixing this problem that Microsoft should've fixed ages ago. Thank you! Just wondering, what's the purpose of having the restore wait 5 seconds? 1 second seems to work fine for me as well.

For me, this method seems to work much better by configuring the second event with 'System Wakes from Sleep' instead of 'Desktop unlocked'. The 'Wait' parameter set to 1000 ms instead of 5000 ms. Also, I've configured the first event with 'Time Interval' (e.g. 120 sec) instead of 'System Idle', otherwise when I sleep the laptop manually windows positions are not saved properly.

Update: I've tried this configuration for a few days now and it's working seamlessly and nicely. It seems like this method finally solves the

Note: I use Windows 7 on a laptop. The laptop operates with the lid closed and connected to an external monitor.

Hello I recently upgraded to a paid subscription and have run into a couple of issues. Upon upgrading, I lost all my previous settings which was rather frustrating. i have now added them all back in but now facing new issues with triggers that were previously working.
when i now unlock my laptop, all the windows flicker vigorously as then settle down. What will cause this?

Thanks

Can you check the "Documents\DisplayFusion Backups" folder for a file called ProVersionDowngrade.reg? If it's there, could you reply with it attached?

Regarding the windows flickering, is that happening when the "Restore Window Positions" trigger runs?

Do the windows flicker, or are they showing up (restoring from minimized) etc and repositioning? The Restore Window Positions function will make the windows show up and move around visibly while it's running.

I'm having issues here unfortuantely where my windows either overlap slightly when they didn't before, or they don't extend all the way down to the bottom of the screen before my taskbar, where there's a small gap of pixels visible where I can see my desktop background.

This happens when manually loading windowp position profiles too sometimes, it's never really consistent, and I'm not sure how to solve this.

Had this problem and so glad to have quickly found this article. I'm new to DisplayFusion and am blown away so far. Brilliant, approachable, customizable goodness you have here.

Question: When I use the Save Position function, there is a Windows sound played. It's rather annoying, since I lock my computer frequently and don't want that sound played every time it happens. How do I stop the sound?

Ah ha! So, to answer my own question regarding the sound.. That is caused by the Windows Notification. I was able to press Windows_Key-A to open the Notifications Tray (or whatever it's called), right click on one of the DisplayFusion notifications, select "Go to notification settings" and turn Off "Play a sound when a notification arrives". Thought I'd share in case someone else needs this bit of info in the future.

@CorneliousJD Thanks for sending that over, it looks like Display Fusion is trying to set the correct position, but the actual position being set is slightly off, which seems to line up with what your seeing. We're going to look into this further. I've noted down your contact information, so we'll be in touch, either to collect more information or to let you know when we have a fix.

@Joeg Glad to hear it's working!

Hello - I have put aside the automatic restore of window position (save seems to work) and am trying to get it working with a hotkey first.

What I'm finding is while the strict x/y position of the chrome windows I'm testing on, is save/restored correctly, that if a window were above another window (either maximised or not) it would then get restored "underneath" ie not visible.

Is there anyway to save/restore in the correct top to bottom position too?

Hi Steve,

We currently don't save the Z position for those functions, but I've added this to our feature request list. We don't guarantee that feature requests will be implemented, or offer timelines on possible implementation. We'll be sure to let you know if we do add it to our planned features in a future version.

Thanks!

Hello,
I just bought the software to overcome the same issue but when I manually put my Windows PC to sleep and wake up, the screen's restored from the rather old windows position. How do I get the window position right before I set the PC to sleep? If I set the time interval like 60 seconds to save the windows position, I get this annoying notification every minute that my windows state is saved. If I manually save the screen and go sleep, I don't even get the image I saved.

I am debating at this point if this is the right software to address the windows position issue. At this point it's almost better off removing the software and just go back to default windows setting and rearrange the windows screens on these dual DP monitors manually.

Hello,

You can disable the notifications with the "General: Don't Show Tray Icon Notification Balloons" advanced setting, if you would like to make the save interval smaller without constant notifications.

Hope that helps!

@CorneliousJD Thanks for sending that over, it looks like Display Fusion is trying to set the correct position, but the actual position being set is slightly off, which seems to line up with what your seeing. We're going to look into this further. I've noted down your contact information, so we'll be in touch, either to collect more information or to let you know when we have a fix.

Thanks!


Nobody ever did reach out - anything I can do to work with you guys on this?

Hello,

@CorneliousJD We've been a bit behind as we got into the holidays, but it is still on our list to fix up. We're hoping to look into it for our next beta.

Thanks!
