Harvey,
one possibility is:

If[$Linked,  (* do nothing for kernel-only sessions *)
   RunScheduledTask[
     FrontEndExecute[{
     SetOptions[FrontEnd`InputNotebook[], WindowSize -> {1150,750}],
     SetOptions[FrontEnd`InputNotebook[], WindowMargins ->
{{7,Automatic},{Automatic,6}}]
}], {0.4, 7}];
];

Depending on your hardware you can tweak the {0.4, 7} numbers.

In case you want to get rid of the ScheduledTask object, add:
RunScheduledTask[RemoveScheduledTask[ScheduledTasks[]], {5, 1}]
