I recently acquired two of the exact same monitors. They are both hooked up through HDMI (0,1) on an RX 580, set to the same resolution, refresh rate, etc. The left monitor is primary, right is secondary. They work wonderfully except for when they wake up from going to sleep. I hope that I'm using the correct terminology: I mean when the monitors blank-out and go into low-power mode but the computer is still running. I have it set to happen after 15 minutes.
When I come back and move my mouse, most open windows on the left screen go to the right screen and some open windows on the right screen go to the left screen. Not all of them, and not all of the time, but more than 50% of the time this happens. I also have a Conky that should always appear on the far right-hand side of the right monitor. When the screens wake up it is on the far-right side of the left monitor. Also, the icon for Computer will jump down a few spaces, below any other icons below it (it's usually in the top-left corner of the primary screen.) None of the other icons will move. All of my panels will stay where they should.
I have tried swapping the monitors physically, changing the primary and secondary designations, buying new HDMI cables, and switching the HDMI cables on the GPU when that didn't work. The monitors have HDMI and VGA inputs, but my GPU does not support VGA.
None of this is dealbreaking, really, but annoying as I usually have the same open windows in the same place.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
