    Lights with a mind of their own

    No matter how often or what I save, scene, objects, current lights, etc. after I do a frame render all the lights move to the origin point - very frustrating!

    You most likely don't have Auto Key turned on. What happens with Auto Key turned off is you move your lights and camera and anything else around and when you render it all snaps back to its original location. That's because you never set a key frame, and LW just resets everything. Even when it's a still shot, LW doesn't know that and still requires a key frame to be set.
    The easiest way to avoid that is to turn Auto Key on. Or you could leave it off but then manually set a keyframe for your cameras and lights individually or all at once, for the frame you want to render.
