Windows 7: Extended desktop feature wears off after shut down or standby

Extended desktop feature wears off after shut down or standby

I recently started using another screen with my [old] laptop, and it works fine, but every time it shutdowns or wakes up from sleep, the option switches automatically to "Show desktop only on 1". And as much as I love to change settings 5 times a day, I would like to get rid of it.

I checked for updates for my ATI 3650 HD, led to nothing. Any ideas?
