Screen Resolution Changes

Have a Sony monitor with 1600 x 1200 resolution capability. Am connecting it
to an IBM T42 Thinkpad laptop as the external monitor; the laptop has an ATI
Mobility Radeon 9000 video card, and a resolution capability of 1024 x 768
resolution 16M colors. I set the resolution to 1280 by 1024 32Bit color and
it works okay; but if the screen saver ever comes on (which it does after 30
minutes), the resolution reverts back to like 800 x 600 - resulting in very
big icons/text/etc. I then have to reboot and reset back to 1280 by 1024. I
can't use 1024 x 768 resolution - everything is too big then also. Does
anyone have any ideas what could cause the resolution to revert, and how to
fix (assuming it is fixable)?

Thanks for any help/thoughts on this....
