Windows "forgetting/disabling" displayport monitor when in HDMI mode?

Hey guys, not necessiarly a monitor issue as I think it's more of a Window's issue but this forum fits the question the best. So here's what happens to me.

I'm currently live streaming games from my XB1 and play through my main PC monitor (4 monitor setup) 3 of which are HDMI only and my main one is DisplayPort. The DP monitor also has an HDMI input as well so that's where my XB1 gets plugged into. I switch the monitors input setting from DP to HDMI when I play obviously.

Here is where the problem starts, after about 30 min? (haven't timed it exactly) my other 3 monitors all get mixed around (one of which is vertical and the orientation get's flipped on that. Switching back to DP doesn't fix the issue, I have to completly unplug the DP from the video card and replug it in for window's to recognize it again. I could deal w/ doing this, however for some ODD reason when this happens it desyncs my webcam/mic on my stream so I'm forced to stop and unplug and replug in the DP even though I'm running stricly to HDMI.

So my current "work around" is between matches I switch the input mode to DP and use it for 10-15 seconds so window's "refreshes" the timer basically.

Sorry if this is long winded and doesn't fully make sense. If you need to know anything else please ask.

I'm assuming from my little knowledge/research it looks like it's more a DP & Window's issue. Just wondering if there's anyway to avoid this from happening.
