Windows 7 Screen Resolution Issue

    Windows 7 power saving feature puts the system to sleep after a certain
    period of idleness. This is fine, but in doing so it also seems to reset my
    screen resolution from the recommended 1980 x 1080 to a much lower
    resolution resulting in much larger icons, type, etc. I can easily re-set
    the resolution, but it doesn't seem like I should have to. Is there a way
    to prevent this change? I've only had my new Windows 7 machine for a week
    or so, but this has happened on several occasions.

    For which video card and driver? FWIW a related symptom that I used to get
    for my tablet and still do on full Restart is that the orientation of the
    secondary screen was Landscape Flipped (because the unlit tablet happened
    to be that). Getting a new driver has as I indicate partially solved the
    problem and getting an even newer driver has given the symptom an
    inconsistent twist--sometimes when it resumes the tablet is lit (in the
    desired orientation) but I have to manually switch to the secondary. I'm
    getting good at using the Win-D,Menu c,... keystrokes needed to fix these
    cases, have even considered creating a keyboard macro for the most common
    one. ; )

    Try finding out if you have a newer driver to go to and see what new quirks
    you get with it?


    Good luck
