Hey guys, for quite a while now everytime my pc goes to sleep all the opened apps move from my secondary monitor to my main monitor. All the file shortcuts I've had on my secondary monitor stay so its just open programs such as discord/spotify that get moved.

Here is a little video demonstrating what happens : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghF8KU4HfWw

I would also like to mention that my secondary monitor is connected to my gpu (rtx 3070) via a HDMI cable whereas my main monitor is connected via a display port if thta may be the cause of the issue.

Edit:
My specs are
Mobo : MEG x570 unify
CPU : Ryzen 5 5600x
GPU : ASUS TUF rtx 3070 8GB
RAM : Corsair Vengeance 3600MHz 16GB x 2
Primary monitor : ASUS VG278Q
Secondary monitor : Acer KG221Q

as far as i can tell, monitor on left wakes up first, becomes your main monitor, once your monitor on right wakes up, monitor on left switches to being secondary

try locking your windows first (windows+L) then sleep, once both monitors are up aftwer waking up, unlock your win

Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS information.

What power saving and sleep settings do you have configured?

See my specs in the edited post.
I have my monitors set to turn off after 15 minutes of inactivty and my pc to sleep after 30 minutes of inactivity
