I have a new W7 ultimate install on a new PC (AOpen DEX4501 w intel GM45 graphics). I have installed the latest Intel graphics drivers 18.104.22.1682, and all relevant windows updates.
It is connected via HDMI to a Grundig Misuro HD TV. My resolution is set to 1600x900, windows recommended resolution is 1920x1080 but this displays badly so I don't use it.
When Windows sleeps, or I turn off (then later on) the monitor, most windows are moved/resized to the upper left with the lower right at 1024x768.
Firefox, Excel(2003),Explorer windows resize/move, Outlook(2003) did not move/resize.
I have a Samurize (Gadget like) display on the right which someimes get relocated to the top left, but not this morning. The windows resize/move also happens when Samurize is not running.
I have found three other entries related to this;
They don't seem to have been resolved for a long time.
This is a Windows monitor power managment issue, can it be fixed please it is very annoying.
I won't be recommending W7 to others with such issues outstanding.
