Windows on second monitor moves to primary monitor after sleep/lock

1 discussion post

Been using DF for a long time now and not sure if this is a DF issue.

I just got a new monitor (32" was 24") I have kept using 2 monitors the 32 and 24 but now Windows on second monitor moves to primary monitor after sleep/lock or when I turn them off. This is really annoying. A least with DF i can click the move to other screen and it goes back it the normal spot.

Is there any fix for this.

Also i used to un HDMI and DVI now run Display Port and HDMI.

This is a known issue in Windows when DisplayPort monitors sleep

The steps in this guide should help though: Automatically Save and Restore Window Positions on Sleep/Resume

I am having the same problem but the windows on my primary monitor moves to the secondary monitor after coming back from sleep.
I have to always move the windows back.

Running Win10 64, 1 43in 4k Asus monitor, 1 Samsung TV 43in @4k and 1 Asus 27in 2.5k monitor. Both the Asus monitors are DF and the Samsung if using DF through a short DF to HDMI adaptor.

I don't think DF is the problem because it does the same thing when I turn DF off.
Definitely a Windows problem.

I will be trying Keith's guide to hopefully correct this.
Very annoying.
