I have 6 monitors for news and trading not gaming.  I'm using a 7750 Eyefinity 6 video card on Windows 10.  I use several apps for trading and news watching on these, and when I set them up in exactly the rights spots, I don't want to have to set them up each time I tap the "sleep" button to save electricity.  
 
The thing is that it's a lot of little charts and other data windows overlying each other, and fit into little corners all over this monitor wall, and it takes to long to set up each time.  
 
So how do I save the arrangement?  Thanks

I can not help with default Win10 settings but can only offer this,

On my Win10 with dual monitors I run DisplayFusion Pro and am unaffected with any placement and sleep issues plus the added task bar/s configurations are very useful. Comes with a lot of other nice options. All my windows ( mostly monitoring utilities) retain placement even from a cold boot. Some start with windows (proper location) while those I start manually return to their previous position as well.

 

I've run this way since Win7 with life time license as 7 didn't come with dual task bar support and just never tried the Win10 default settings but one time. Immediately reinstalled DisplayFusion after seeing how blah default is.

Perhaps another member on Win10 with multi monitors will chime in.

If that doesn't work for you, you can give Ultramon a shot.  I use it, but I don't sleep my machine.  It keeps the icons on the screen they were moved to and you have different options for the Start bar, I have it on all three screens.

To be honest, I am a little surprised that things are moving when you put the computer to sleep. That is not something that I have ever had happen to me with multiple monitor setups, but then I also have never had a 6 monitor setup, so I don't know if that changes things. It will happen if I reboot the computer (which is why I have made use of similar applications to what has been recommended), but not if I just put the computer to sleep. Strange.
