    when you say its kept dormant... it depends the conditions under which it is kept
    certain conditions can lead to strings becoming lower pitched - flat, or higher pitched - sharp... i.e. out of tune.
    therefore try and keep it in as similar a condition when in storage, in terms of temperature and relative humidity, as it is when being played.
    also if the strings are new then they are more likely to go out of tune
    and i sometimes seem to get my b string going out of tune quicker than most other strings, dunno about that?

    if you keep doing things the way they've always been done, then you'll keep getting the things you've always got

    Remove your strings, clean the nut. Dirt in the Nut is the main reason for the guitars to go out of tune... Whenever you string a guitar, tune it to standard pitch. Then put your hands below the strings and pull them slightly or on each strings do 3 frets bends a lot. This will make it to lose tune. Now tune it back again to the standard pitch... Again pull the strings making them lose tune. Retune it again. Keep doing till at one point when you pull the strings the strings will not go out of tune. That way your guitar remains in tune...Suppose you have a gig in the evening and you end up changing the strings in the afternoon, you cant wait for the string to settle down. This is the method used even by Pros and Guitar Techs who work for pros...
