    Question Personalization (wallpaper, display settings etc.) reset back to default

    I'm new to ubuntu, I have been using it for a month now and sometimes when I normally turn off my computer and turn it back on after like a day or so, my display settings reset. I find it a bit annoying because I have to tune my settings to where it was so it's a bit easier to access things. My version of Ubuntu is 16.04 LTS, does anyone get this problem or can it be fixed? Thank you for your help!

    Note: This is not happening because of unrecognized hardware specs and choosing to launch normal graphics anyway. That happened to me only once and my display settings reset.

    sudo lspci -vk | grep -iA20 vga

    Would that be the icon size in the Unity panel on the left or desktop icons ?
