External Monitor

I close the lid on my laptop to enter the "Sleep Mode". when I open the lid to return to a normal state, I lose my external monitor. In order to get it back, I need to go through personalize option and redetect the monitors.

I have employed the use of the MCE standby tool, Slick Solutions - Home of the MCE Standby Tool (MST) useing various configurations, but nothing has worked. Any ideas ?

CPU - intel core duo 2 - 2.66ghz
Ram - 4gb
HD - 500gb
OS - Win7 - Ultimate / VISTA Ultimate

You can't just press the Fn key combination to re-enable it?
