wrong window positions at session restore

Hi,
I have a three monitor setup, two virtual desktop and three activities.

Unfortunatly my computer freezes every now and then and when I have to login back I always find all the application windows belonging to the previous session randomly restored over casual activities and monitors, with no apparent logic. Thus I always have to manually reposition every window application and when you have twenty or thirty windows it's a big loss of time.

Anyone experiencing the same problem?

I suspect that KDE writes session information at logout only. If so, is there a way to force KDE to write session information on a time basis?

thanks
goo

Yes, I think. Switch KDE to "restore preveriouse saved session" in the session managment. In the kick off menu a new position should appear called "save session".

I belive that there is some kind of dbus interface to save session without the need to use the menu but I never explored this.

Hope that this will help you.

thanks man, that way I can finally save sessions. Now it's time to find the proper dbus interface, if any, and put it in a cron job.
