I explained that to your once, but you seems to have missed it :)

 This not a big problem when you screen setup is permanent, there could be
 some problems with fullscreen games but nothing critical, but as soon as
 you want you additional, sometimes off sometimes on, monitor to be left one
 everything goes bonkers. Because every time you connect/disconnect it
 display coordinates of you main (right) monitor change. And that means
 that all windows with pinned positions and all maximized windows starts
 jumping around, you can no longer force programs to start at certain
 position because that position is different depending on whenever second
 display is connected or not.
