Stop Windows thinking there's only one monitor connected when second is turned off?

    I have two monitors.

    If I connect both via. HDMI-to-HDMI cables to my GTX 1080 and turn one monitor off (perhaps I'm playing a game on the left one or something), the PC makes the "hardware disconnected" sound and all the windows from that turned-off monitor move to the first one. It's extremely annoying.

    I've discovered connecting the second via. a HDMI-to-DVI cable to the DVI port on the GPU fixes things but I'd prefer 2x pure HDMI connections.

    Is it possible to stop the behavior described above?
