    Okay not quite sure whether this is software or hardware. Basically what the problem is - When I set the Mini to sleep overnight when I turn it back on in the morning the screen resolution has reset itself to 800x600. I usually run in 1024x768 (never 800) so was wondering if its a problem with the OS? If so how do I sort it? Alternatively is it a problem with my monitor?
    Thanks for any help. Although its nothing major its kind of annoyance. Cheers.

    My mini wakes up well rested and in set resolution every time.
    This definitely is not a monitor problem, i would blame the OS, but then again, why would it do that :confused:

    Maybe you have some kind of third party software that switches resolution (for a screensaver maybe). Good luck hunting it down.

    Try a different screen saver. It could be the limited video ram.

    Is the monitor turned on before you wake up the Mini? Because even with my PM if the display is turned off when I wake it up, I have to do "detect displays"...
