fedora 13 freezes after plugging the projector

My display on fedora 13 freezes, key board stops working, when I connect projector to my laptop. I see the display settings mentions "DVI monitor, resolution 1280X800 refresh rate 60.0". Do I need to set the resolution to some other number before plugging the projector on and do I need to change it back to the default resolution after unplugging projector?

Uhm. it seems more like your X server is crashing, first of all update, always update
yum update
Then check your /etc/X11/Xorg.conf .If you come up with an answer/workarround, please post here, if not, we can try to solve.
