It takes a bit (up to a minute or so) for yabai to stop.

Using this command joined with `&&` makes sure that the start command waited for the stop command to finish.

Things jump around a lot when it starts back up. Give it a bit to settle down. Also, windows sometimes end up in different places. Don't be surprised if you have to move stuff around after a restart.
