Windows and multi-monitors

I have multi-monitors and work from home, using Windows. I only use the second monitor when I'm working though. At other times, I simply turn the second monitor off.

However, a problem arises when applications that were running in the second monitor when I last closed them will start up there, which is EXTREMELY aggravating when I have the second monitor turned off. AFAIK, there's no way to prevent this, which makes me want to beat down some Microsoft engineers ;) To combat this, I do the windows key+P shortcut to actually disable the second monitor when I'm not using it.

Other than that, I've never really had any other issues.
