    I use a dual monitor set up with the bigger screen housing my dock and secondary fullscreen window in LR and the smaller cheap screen has all the sliders and stuff.
    For whatever reason the Dock just decides to switch monitors throwing everything out of wack, is there a way to stop this from happening?

    To switch the Dock from one screen to the other, move the mouse to the bottom of the screen where you want the dock, then move the mouse down. The dock will move.

    To prevent it from moving, you have a few options:

    1. System Preferences > Mission Control > Uncheck "Displays have separate spaces" (makes dual-displays work like Mountain Lion)

    2. System Preferences > Dock > check "Automatically hide and show the Dock". Doesn't actually prevent the behavior, but auto-hides it so it's less irritating

    3. System Preferences > Dock > Position to Left or Right. Won't switch screens if you do this.

    4. Full-screen an app on your 2nd screen. If there is a full-screen app active on a screen, the dock won't move there.
