Screensaver moves all my windows on waking

When I wake my display after the screensaver kicks in, all of my windows are resized and moved to the upper left corner of the screen.  All of the windows are the same size and piled on top of each other, so I'm constantly dragging and resizing windows.  Any windows that are minimized on the toolbar are also resized and moved to the top left.  Is anyone else seeing this?  I'm using one of the built-in Windows 7 screensaver, I haven't tried installing any others, maybe I should give that a try and see if the problem persists..

Hello msumjb,

Thank you for visiting the Microsoft Answers Community.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833. This issue could possibly be a problem with your display adapter driver. You should also look into this as a possibility.

Try booting into safe mode to determine if the same behavior is displayed without using the driver.
