Windows 7: order of my folders on the taskbar is changed after computer wakes up

order of my folders on the taskbar is changed after computer wakes up

I have a different sort of problem with grouping.

See, I'm a game modder, and this requires me to have many folders open at once. The problem is, when my computer goes to sleep and then wakes up, the order of my folders on the taskbar is changed. This bugs me to no end, and I'm wondering how I can stop this reordering from happening. Thanks!

That's weird. Mine don't rearrange when it resumes from sleep. Do you have some third party icon/system customizers installed or something?
