I was experiencing two problems. (1) Vista overriding the calibrated
monitor profile during bootup and (2) Vista reverting back to the old profile
after the screensaver kicks in or the monitor goes in sleep or hibernation
I have found a work around for the first problem. I installed a program
called Startup Delayer which allows you to put a time delay on your startup
programs. I put a delay of 60 seconds on the Calibration Loader and this
allows the calibrated profile to survive past the boot process. This lasts
until Vista kicks out of active mode for whatever reason (screensaver, sleep,
hibernation, etc.). Once that happens, I have to reboot in order to have a
calibrated screen. I cannot manually load the calibrated profile outside of
the boot process.
I know it is not a total solution but I hope it helps you somehow.
