Windows 11
I have recently installed a new NVME SSD and a fresh install of Windows 11 Pro.

Due to inactivity my computer is set to go into sleep mode. When coming out of sleep mode the desktop is randomly in the portrait orientation rather than the landscape orientation it is set to. This is a pain to try and go into settings to adjust, due to difficulty in managing the mouse in portrait orientation.

Does anyone have any suggestions, please, as to what I can do to stop this happening.

Thanks.

What is your graphics card? If it is Intel and you have Intel Graphics Properties, go set orientation to 0 degrees and then disable any key combinations to rotate the screen, so it is not triggered accidentally. Not sure if you can lock orientation from Settings, System, Screen or elsewhere.

Yes there is a setting there, mine is set to horizontal. Check there.

Yes, probably one of them (most likely Windows) is set to portrait and hence your issue. Set both to horizontal/landscape 0 degrees.

They are both set to Landscape. When the pc comes out of sleep in portrait orientation the windows setting had changed to portrait. I did not think to check the NVIDIA settings but will do so next time it happens. However, if NVIDIA is currently in landscape, assume that neither of these settings are what is causing the problem.
