Hey folks. New to this forum website as Im looking for some advice on my windows rearranging when I sleep or lock my laptop.

I currently have a 48 inch display hooked up to my Dell work laptop. Its a wicked setup for productivity and multitasking as I recently switched over to this from a 3 monitor setup. I have WinSplit installed for arranging my windows into 4 quadrants (it you suggest another program, please share).

When I turn the display off after locking my computer or putting it to sleep, upon logging back in, all of the windows are stacked in the left corner. I have to constantly rearrange them which is getting irritating after 5 or 6 times a day.

Any recommendations on how to stop this from occurring?

does it remember settings if you just shutdown the computer?


sleep/hibernate modes are notorious for errors when the recover from their inactive modes.


if it does then I would just disable those modes and not use them.

Could be you need a new battery. The battery keeps the time and settings.
