Windows 7: W7 Ent -monitor color is screwed up upon screen saver wakeup

W7 Ent -monitor color is screwed up upon screen saver wakeup

Have an Lenovo 8808 unit with Windows 7 x64 Enterprise (technet)
For monitors I have a Planar px2701mw and an LG flatron 20"

So the issue is when the computer wakes up from a screen saver session the primary monitor (planar) comes on with the color scheme totally whacked, usually with a very heavy magenta tint to it. I think I have isolated this to the video portion of the Lenovo since tinkering with the monitor reveals a normal image at any other time including another computer's video output. If I go in a change the resolution back and forth that 'resets' the screen and everything goes back to normal. I don't recall this happening all the time, but it is enough to be annoying.

Other than this little color issue everything seems to be working fine.

Anyone have thoughts on this?
