I'm having a bit of an issue with how Windows Vista (or my ASUS notebook)
handles closing my notebook lid. If I have an external monitor (my TV through
S-Video) connected to my laptop, but not used, and I close my notebook lid,
it switches over to the TV automatically -- changing the desktop resolution
from 1440x990 (my notebook resolution) to 1024x768 (the TV resolution).
When I open my laptop lid, the desktop is displayed on both notebook monitor
and TV, at 1024x768 resolution. This lower resolution moves around all my
desktop icons, and it's painfully annoying to go back into the Display
Settings to change the settings back again.
I've disabled Microsoft TMM (the multi-monitor thingy) from my Task
Scheduler as someone pointed out, in resolve some other issues I was having
with Extending the Desktop.
I also have my Power Options -> System Settings -> set to "Do nothing" "When
I close the lid". And yet.... it does something!
Anyone out there with any kind of solution to this?
