Windows 7, Gigabyte GTX 1080, U2417H

Hi. Sorry for my bad English.

Windows removes U2417H when power is switched off.

I have:

Main monitor U2417H, connected by DP - DP Mini cable.

Second monitor Asus, connected by HDMI cable (and has no DP input).

Video card Gigabyte GTX 1080 G1 Gaming (has 3 DP and 1 HDMI outputs).

Windows 7 x64.

If I press power button on the U2417H, Windows think that I removed device from computer.

As result: a) Windows moves all windows, etc to second monitor, so all windows lose position/size. b) if second monitor is disconnected, Windows think that I have no monitors. and some programs may crash (windows position/size problem also is here).

So, each time I need restore all positions/sizes of all windows.

How is posiible to avoid this behaviour? I want that Windows won't remove the monitor when I switched power off.

BTW, when I use HDMI cable instead DP, then the behaviour is right. But I used HDMI for second monitor. If I will use a DP -> HDMI adapter, will it fix the behaviour? And is there any difference between DP-DP and DP-DP mini? Maybe I can change something in Windows for fix the problem?
