I have an IBM T43 laptop. I have recently reformatted and reinstalled XP Pro. I have one problem i am stuck trying to resolve. If I close the laptop without shutting down the resolution changes to 800x600 forcing me to manually change back and rearrange my desktop icons.

Any one have any suggestions??

Just checked this setting and it is set "To do nothing"

I assume I need to change this to "Stand By"

Did you reinstall the drivers when you reinstalled XP? To check, go to Start...Run...and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Look for any red X's or yellow !'s and let us know what you find.

You can try the change to standby and see if it makes a difference. The driver is important too as
usasma says.
I did a search and found this wasn't an uncommon problem, yet no solutions were found, except with Vista, but XP didn't have this option.
