  1. Apps getting moved to Secondary monitor after PC wakes up from sleep mode


    Hi Guys,


    I have a new ACER laptop and since I have started using it I have noticed very weird thing with Windows 10 (1809 but it happened on previous version as well).


    I have additional 27" monitor connected through HDMI cable - I have set it as main screen but I am also using my laptop screen for other apps (lets say sticky notes).


    So now that works well. However I have noticed that every time after my laptop is restated or even if it goes to sleep mode or just the screen time out the all of the apps from my laptop screen are moved to my main screen.


    This is really frustrating because I need to re-configure the setup every time.


    Do you guys know what can be causing it and how to fix it?

    On my previous laptop the apps/windows didn't move to the main screen.


    Another issue is that the NumLock on my external keyboard switches itself off for no reason.

    Again - this didn't happen previously.



    ***Modified title from: Windows apps moved between screens***

    :)

    Monitor Not Waking Up After Sleep


    I am experiencing a critical issue - when my computer goes into sleep mode, or if I manually place it in sleep mode, the monitor will not wake. The PC is running; I can hear the fan and the light on the front of the monitor is on, but the monitor itself will not wake. The only way I can get the computer back on is to do a hard reset by holding in the power button, turning it off, then back on. I've tried all the obvious fixes; windows updates, graphic card driver updates, unplugging, turning off sleep mode, turning off Link State Power Management ,making sure the keyboard or the mouse are able to wake the computer in settings, etc. Nothing so far has worked. Any suggestions on how to fix or what the problem may be?
    An additional problem is that I cannot even save some new settings in my motherboard. Somehow the settings return to the default settings and the problem remains. The PC purchased brand new almost 4 months ago.

    CPU Intel Core i5 8600k 3.60GHz
    Graphic Card (integrated): Intel ® UHD Graphics 630
    Motherboard: Gigabyte Z370 HD3
    OS: WINDOWS 64 BIT

    Could you please provide any suggestion?

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards,

    Waking up from sleep mode

    Hi Phil,

    If you are unable to get out of Sleep mode, it could mean that the BIOS installed reduces the power to which your input device is connected, i.e. mouse or keyboard. For us to properly assist you in getting out of Sleep mode, kindly respond to the questions
    below:

    • Can you explain further what you are experiencing? Were you able to get to the lock screen after waking from Sleep mode?
    • Are you using a laptop or a desktop computer?
    • When did the issue start to occur? Did it happen after installing an update, an app, or a driver?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far? This is for us to know and to avoid any duplication of efforts on your end.

    We look forward to your response.
