How come my netbook resolution keeps changing after connecting to an external monitor?

by on February 1, 2011

Q: I plugged my netbook into an external monitor and the resolution was reset. Now that the external monitor is removed it’s still at the same resolution. When I go to the display settings and set it back to the netbooks 1024×600 resolution, it always reverts back to the external monitor resolution after it sleeps. How do I get it to stay at the original netbook resolution?
