When i set up via display I wish to not set mirror option however when monitors goes to sleep or other event that I am not aware off it switches back to mirroring. To revert back to EXTENDED display what I have to do is, via display, is switch on mirroring then switch off mirroring to get back to EXTENDED display mode.

This is NOT ArcoLinux.

Check the forum of your own distro.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
