my workspace setup is the layers-panel at full height + a couple of tool-windows in minimized pop-out mode (only icons visible). see the screenshot attached. now in this latest versions of ps (incl 2015.1.1) these pop-out tool windows won't stay open for long. i can open them, but as soon as i click in the canvas or the layer panel again, they will close.

Try rt-click (cmd-click) on the icon for your panel you want to stay open. If there is an option that says "Auto-collapes iconic panels" that is checked, uncheck it. If that doesn't work, I don't have an answer.
