Have a minor problem with my desktop icons being reset to 16:9 from my native 21:9 after "low power/standby" (?) mode. Likely drivers? Or anyone have any other ideas?

I've found that hibernation mode rather than standby mode is less likely to cause problems because the previous state of the computer is restored from memory.

I use a program called Desktop OK (see the link below) to restore desktop icons if they change as happens with Windows 7 if I switch between computers using a single monitor. The program might restore the icons to the right size if you can't find a solution. It only takes 2 clicks of a mouse to restore the desktop and minimise the program to the icons in the taskbar.

I woke up the other morning to find all my desktop icons jammed up on the left side of the screen again, as happens after changing to and from a lower res.
Was fine when I went to bed, I hadn't been messing with desktop res or other monitors, and the machine wasn't sitting at a login prompt when I woke up as would be the case after an update.

I can't believe Windows STILL doesn't have a "Save/Restore/Favourite Desktop Icon Positions" function built in.
Surely it couldn't be too hard to add a routine which writes that data into a section of the desktop.ini (or wherever) and then backs up that file prior to any messing about with the desktop, to make reverting nice and easy.

It really shouldn't make any difference whether you're restoring from standby/sleep or hibernate.
Sleep saves/restores the OS state using RAM, hibernate writes it out to/reads it back from disk. In theory they should work identically.
In theory. In practice, I always found sleep to be more reliable, at least it is on my Win7 notebook. I don't have a Win10 portable to compare it with.
It also depends on how long you're leaving the machine in that suspended state for. Hibernate should certainly be more reliable if you're talking "days at a time".

I'll have a look at DesktopOK, sounds ideal. Thanks.
