screen resolution changes when laptop lid opens


When I open my laptop lid after it has been closed for a while, the screen resolution changes. It looks like it has been zoomed into the top left corner of the screen. The only thing I know to do is restart X, which fixes this problem, but really isn't the optimal solution. Any suggestions would help. Thanks.

Your installation is probably probably set to "Suspend to RAM" or "Suspend to disk" when the "Close laptop lid" event occurs.

If you do not like this behaviour, or it isn't working to your satisfaction, then either do not close the lid or disable the action that closing the lid invokes.
