Dual Monitors - windows keep resizing and moving to main monitor after sleep

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have 2 Display Port monitors. One is a Dell and the other is an Acer. Every time I wake my PC from sleep, all my windows on the secondary monitor have been resized and moved back to the primary monitor. No matter what I do, I cannot seem to fix this issue. On my old PC, this would never happen, and my windows would stay in the same position after waking from sleep. My new PC is running a Ryzen CPU and a RX 5700 graphics card, but since my previous PC had an AMD card as well (HD 7970), I don't think it's a GPU issue. It could possibly be an issue with AMD CPUs since my previous computer had an Intel Core i7. Does anyone know how to fix this? It's driving me crazy because every single time I wake my PC i have to reposition my windows.


Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Question of graphics card and drivers and how they react to a monitor being turned off/disconnected.

It's always been an issue with some combinations, and the reason why I never put a multi-monitor desktop to sleep.

Even if I don't put it to sleep, if the screens timeout after 20 minutes the windows are moved and resized as well. Is there really no way to fix this?
