I own a 2011 Mac Mini running Mountain Lion, and I have two AOC screens hooked up, the one thing I hate about it is if I turn them off, or I let them run into screensaver the second I wake them up everything is pushed back onto the first screen.

I'm not sure if the Mac just doesn't detect the screen for a while or if its a general bug, but it can get annoying, I like to have my Mail and Twitter on the second screen and everything else on the first.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I know what you're talking about and what you need to do to hopefully overcome your problem. Press this key combination: Control+Shift+Eject. This will halt the display out to the screens, but will still function. For instance, if you were rendering a large video overnight, you could press that, and it wouldn't disturb you.

Just a mater of getting into a routine by using that combination of keys. It's like the CTRL+C and CTRL+V for the cut and paste for windows. I have the first generation mac mini and its fun to learn with over here. Just have to keen the mind set it's not windows or linux. Cause each of them have their good and their bad things.
