location 'math'

Other people have pointed out how to script the position of your 
palette using "the loc" i.e. the center of the stack. The other 
property which you might find useful is "the topLeft". This is good for 
setting the stack's position but it is particularly important if you 
resize a stack on the fly because when you resize, it resizes about the 
center so it effectively moves the stack.

If you lock the screen, store the topLeft in a variable, resize the 
stack and then reset to the original topLeft, it looks like your stack 
never moved.
