Same Problem here, every restart of Spotify (when Windows Starts or if I close and start it again) the Switch remains on "off" but the Overlay is enabled.

 

I have to switch it on and off again.

Really Anoying.

The amount of time it takes to fix this issue it's embarrassing. It's not even the first time this problem occur, come on.

Fix it already, **bleep** it! This problem occurs now and then for more than 6 months now!

Work around is to enable and disable it again. Seems some internal config flag/value gets reset every time when an update is released, but the GUI isn't showing this value somehow..

Solution!
