Corrupted wallpaper on wake from sleep (3 monitors)

1 discussion post
I have 3 monitors; primary is 3440x1440, a portrait 1440x2560, and a small stats screen that is 1024x600. I have random wallpapers on the first 2, each sourced from a separate folder that has WP of the appropriate orientation & resolution. The small screen is filled by a stat screen by Aida64.

When I wake the PC from sleep the primary monitor does not wake automatically, the other 2 do. I have to wake the primary manually. In the meantime, Windows has made the portrait monitor primary briefly; as soon as the 3440x1440 wakes Windows makes the transition. This transition seems to give displayfusion fits. Once all the monitors are on the wallpapers are all distorted, fragmented, and on the wrong screens. A single image will literally be broken into sections and pieces of it will be on different screens. Parts of each screen will have no WP at all. If I open DF and force an update to the WP then everything corrects itself, but I have to do this every time I wake the PC.

I bought DF specifically to deal with random WP on 3 very different monitors, so it's not meeting its primary purpose for me.

Running the latest version of DF.

Any suggestions?

If you head into the trigger settings in Display Fusion, you should be able to create a trigger using the "Monitor Profile" change event. You can save your default monitor configuration as a monitor profile, and use it in the match conditions of the trigger, and use the "Run Function" action to load your wallpaper.

If you need any help setting that up, just let me know.
