Suspend Restores Wrong Screen Size etc...

Post by Kendoori »

I'm running Gloria on a EEE Box B202, attached to a Vizio 20" monitor that is set to 16 x 9 (1280 x 720). When I suspend the machine and bring it back up, the display doesn't come back in the right aspect (e.g. the panel is nearly hidden at the bottom) and the color depth appears wrong (e.g. 256 color or less). If I use the display applet to change to 800 x 600, the screen changes to that properly and the 16M color depth. If I try to change back to 1280 x 720, it goes back to the original state. Reboot clears up this condition. Here's what the machine has hardware wise:

Code: Select all

System:    Host kitchen-desktop Kernel 2.6.28-11-generic i686 (32 bit) Distro Linux Mint 7 Gloria - Main Edition
CPU:       Single core Intel Atom N270 (HT) cache 512 KB flags (sse3 nx) 
           Clock Speeds: (1) 1600.00 MHz (2) 1600.00 MHz

           Card-2 Realtek RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller driver r8169
Disks:     HDD Total Size: 160.0GB (1.9% used) 1: ST9160827AS
Partition: ID:/ size: 144G used: 2.8G (3%) ID:swap-1 size: 3.05GB used: 0.00GB (0%) 
Info:      Processes 128 Uptime 38 min Memory 358.8/994.4MB Client Shell inxi 1.0.6 
any suggestions on how to get the display to come back properly?

The only thing I've found in a quick search is to disable Compiz
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
