Screen dimensions go off after a while on Mandrake 10.0 Toshiba Satellite

Whenever the screen on my laptop goes off and I press a button to get it back up again the screen dimensions are weird, it's like the screen is stretched but I'm only seeing a part of it.

Pressing Ctr-Alt-F1 and then Alt-F7 fixes it but I'd like to not have to do that.

Hardware: Toshiba Satellite Pro M15-S405
Intel Centrino 1.6
60 GB hardDrive
NVIDIA GeForce4 420 32 MB

Mandrake 10.0 Community.
Kernel 2.6.3
nvidia driver installed correctly. (I see NVidia splash page when starting X)

What options have you set for your driver? ( in the XF86Config-4 file )
