Thanks, Maguscreed. Works a charm. BTW in W7 you can input a command line into the "location" bar of the add new shortcut wizard. But you knew that, I'll bet.

Create batch file that will switch to a particular screen resolution?

So, hey Brink, I guess there's no way to create a batch file which will switch to a particular resolution?

I find myself switching back and forth from 720p to 1080p frequently. Separate 1080.bat...

OP Update:
I have successfully installed and am running the UPS software, APC's PSPE. I can with fair confidence say that it was the raid 1 disks spinning down that caused the problem. The system is...

Civilization V is pretty awesome. If you liked the Sims and the board game Risk, you should really like Civ V.

@ sygnus21: it was APC Powerchute. Now that I know what the problem was (and it has not resurfaced since I took the RAID array off its power-down), I will probably reinstall it. I know that the...

I am afraid you mistook me, NoN. What I meant to say was that the UPS software set the disks to sleep after 30 minutes of idling. This, in turn, made IRST unstable, apparently triggering errors or...

Intel Rapid Storage Technology: overtaxes system

I am hoping someone has solved this themselves, or knows how to research the problem further than I. My next recourse is to re-install the system without IRST.

The system works well, in general,...

@Outlander: It's called Intel Rapid Storage Technology now. They changed the name a couple of years back.
