Icons not staying put after sleep mode

Hi anyone else have this problem? Whenever I close (sleep mode) my otherwise alsome Surface the icons magically go over to the left in some random order. I'm logged in as a local account, not my Microsoft account.

Any help would be appreciated

Hey Bikeazoid, I have the same problem, funny thing, the longer it stays in sleep mode, the funkier the icons get. I guess for all the things that could go wrong, this is the most minimal. See you at home Bikeazoid.

Bravo :D My guess it others aren't experiencing this. Have you tried right clicking on the desktop to see if auto arrange is on?

Thanks GaryJK and J5150, it's not. Funny thing is, I have experienced this before, with rdp sessions, but that was more consistent, this is just.... not. If I log of and log on, it's OK, but if I'm off for a few hours, it gets shuffled. they go the left, but not the far left, not like "auto arrange".

Again, if I get delt one bum card, I should be thankfull on the ease of this one. Thanks for responding.

Mine does that, so there's nothing wrong with your machine. I usually take it to bed to read for a while, and when I turn it on the next morning, some of my icons have moved to the left. I never cared enough to try to figure out why. I figure icons are like children, sometimes you just have to love them the way they are.

Take care,
Russ

I notice the desktop icons move if you change the screen orientation. I've now positioned them in a way that they revert back to the way they were in landscape after I rotate it to portrait.
