OK, in that photo it clearly looks like a standard ol' aluminum framed window. I'll assume the frame is not thermally broken, so a good bit of condensation is to be expected. Enough to produce that much water? Unlikely, but not impossible.

But you did say it happened when it rained, eh? When it stops, go outside and have a good look at the glass/frame joint. Should see silicone consistantly filling any gap between the two. Shouldn't see any voids at all. Very common to have such voids, though. And such leaks.

If that's the case, there is a pookey that can seal the window after the fact. Call your local glass company and axe them do they know what I'm talking about. It's a sealer that they apply from a little presurized can thingee that's real thin and can seep into the very small joint and dries fairly quickly. And it's pretty permenant. Easier than removing the glass and taking a chance on breaking the seal between the panes and causing still another problem.

Or you could just try some silicone sealant if you see a big ol' gap there.

Or maybe it's something else entirely.

Any chance there is a warranty on the window? Five years is not uncommon.

Them "holds" we generally refer to as stops, hereabouts.

My opinion; worth price charged.
