Fujitsu Lifebook - Extended Desktop

Experts,

I have a nice little Fujitsu Lifebook laptop computer running XP Tablet Edition that I am successfully extending my desktop out to another monitor. That is, until I lock my computer ... when I lock my computer and the unlock it to resume my work it jumps from the Extended Desktop mode to the Dual Display Clone mode. Needless to say this is very frustrating because in order to get things back to the way they were I open the Graphics Properties for the Intel Extreme Graphics 2 for Mobile window and tweak things back to the right mode, screen resolution and monitor location ...

So far I have gone to Intel's site ... downloaded and installed the latest display drivers and all that has done is give me a nicer interface for their display settings. It may have fixed some bugs but id did not fix mine ...

What to do? Not locking my machine is not an option. Is there some setting with Tablet PCs that will not invoke what ever is causing this monitor refresh or switching of views? It appears like it is trying to do something helpful ... like determining the state of things when it unlocked and refreshing the view accordingly ... but it's not working. Has anybody run into this before?

Let me know if more information is needed and thanks in advance for any/all input,

Wally Atkins

Ah ... I asked this question too quickly ...

Control Panel
  - Fujitsu Display Controls

I disabled Automatic Orientation Control ... there are some additional display settings in this panel as well but I believe that this is the one that needs to be unckecked in order to stop the automatic screwing up of my display settings.
