More information needed. Logs, hardware details, etc.
You haven't even mentioned which version of Debian you are using...

Hi thanks for your answer. I had a dist-upgrade and when the new version9 was installed Cinammon desktop took over.
Apparently it rotates your screen by default every now and then, so all I had to do was going in to Cinnamon settings and put that option on off.
Thank you very much for your help.
I think it should be marked as solved. :D :D

Stretch (9) isn't out of freeze yet, you shouldn't have got it with a dist-upgrade unless your sources are tracking testing...
I assume this is intentional, and you are aware of the implications?

Hi Steve, I'm completely unaware of the implication.
Everything is working fine at the moment.
I don't know how I got it through the dist-upgrade.
Thanks

Implication: You are running the testing branch, which is liable to break unexpectedly, and such breakage may not be fixed for some time. You also get the slowest security updates.
That said, right now this is not a bad place to be, the current testing branch (Stretch) is pretty close to release, so it should be fine.
What you want to watch out for is continuing to track testing after stretch becomes the new stable... Then you are in the "may break without warning" situation.

Does your sources.list say "testing" or "stretch"?
The former means you will get whatever is the testing branch at any given time, the latter means you will stay with stretch when it becomes the new stable.
I would suggest #2, personally, as I don't like unpleasant surprises.
