Does no one know when to change over to the 3rd position on a violin or is too stupid of a question for me even to ask.....

Well, I don't play a string, but I would imagine that there is no "correct" answer to this question.
I would think it would depend on the piece you are playing and how you are most comfortable playing it.
I play the Horn, and sometimes run into the problem of what fingering to use for what notes, since you can play just about every note on a horn with a number of different fingering combinations. The way I do it is to examine the notes before and after the note in question, and most of the times I get my answer from that. Whatever combination of fingerings for the progression of notes in the phrase is the easiest to handle - that's what I'll most likely do.
Hope that makes sense and helps you a little.
