Windows 7: Intel Graphics color saturation flaw

Intel Graphics color saturation flaw

I have a really annoying problem that happens every time my computer wakes up from hibernation or stand-by. The problem is that everytime it wakes, the saturation switches back to its default settings, then of coarse I have to open it and fix it everytime I want some descent color so I can watch a movie. So I did a little research...

Here is intels take on the issue;

Graphics — Color corrections reset after hibernation or sleep

and thats it, no reason, no fix, only nada! Pure lousy of them I must say, especially the part saying that no third party program can fix this because the graphics card has complete control over windows color management. At least they tell you it can't be fixed though instead of telling me the problem and letting me run around like a headless chicken.

This applies to these cards incase anyone else curious to figure out is having these problems;

Intel® 82810 Graphics and Memory Controller Hub (GMCH)
Intel® 82815 Graphics Controller
Intel® 82830M Graphics and Memory Controller Hub (GMCH)
Intel® 82852/82855 Graphics Controller Family

Mobile Intel® 915GM/GMS, 910GML Express Chipset Family
Mobile Intel® 945GM Express Chipset Family
Mobile Intel® 965 Express Chipset Family

So obviously they won't address the issue, which really makes me mad that they would let something so little and annoying be a flaw on so many generations and never address the issue when they state themselves they know about it! Yet they still will not do anything to fix it. To this date the newest of chipsets they make have this flaw with no expressed or said intention to fix this.

But if by some weird chance they do happen to address this, or if someone knows how, please let me know! Thanks!

P.S. Screw you intel!
