I am running Windows 8 64-bit on a 3 monitor setup using Catalyst 13.1.

Occasionally after waking my computer from sleep, I notice that any popup windows, or boxes, that occur end up happening all the way over at the upper-left corner of the leftmost monitor.  This doesn't happen all the time, maybe just one out of three sleeps, or so.  I see no pattern.

It is simple to reset this error by signing out and right back in.  Then all popups behave as expected (generally occurring in the center of the center monitor) until the next time it happens.

This has happen to me since the final W8 came out and through various versions of Catalyst drivers since then.  I never noticed this issue in any of the pre-release versions of W8.

It's starting to drive me nuts!  Anybody else seen this behavior?
