Why does Vista flash me every time I open my laptop

    I am running Vista Ultimate on a laptop. Every time I open my laptop, 30
    seconds later, the screen goes black and comes back on. Looks like some
    type of screen adjustment, reminds me of the same screen flash you get when
    you switch video modes

    I do not have the laptop set to power off or sleep when the lid closes. It
    is very annoying that it does this every time I close the lid. How do I tell
    Vista to stop adjusting video?

    have you installed the latest drivers from the manufacturers web site.

    Yes, I have. It could be the drivers, but I suspect Vista. My gut feel, is
    that Vista puts the monitor into a power save mode when I close the lid.
    When I open the lid, it comes out of that power save mode. About 20 or 30
    seconds later, the screen flashes as if it were going through some type of
    check or validation. It's real annoying.
