How do I get my Categories not to resort the products every couple of hours?

Running version 1.1.3

I have set all my categories to display product in a certain order using the position field under category products.

It works really good to put the products in the exact order I want in every category


for some reason after a couple of hours the sort order is different. Then if I go back into the admin to the category page and click any category and then click save and go back to the front end the sort order is restored.

Why does this happen? It seems like Magento is moving product to the top that are best sellers or something?

Anyone have an idea what is going on with this? Is it a bug, a feature or me doing something wrong like not running a cron?
