    I had a different idea... I wonder if it would be possible to write a startup script that disables the video driver upon shutdown/hibernate (using DEVCON), and then enables it upon resume/powerOn, also using DEVCON.

    I am too chicken to try this though, because if it fails, I have no way of looking at my screen. I do have WinVNC capabilities, but I don't know if that would work under the 'no video driver' scenario!

    I know it's worth a try. Just not worth MY try!!!

    I don't know abuot the DOS start up stuff but the windows boot screen can be changed with this awesome program I have called Tune up. If you want it msg me and ill send it to you via torrent or aim.... preferably torrent. You can change the windows boot up screen to be any picture you want. The Tune up utilities I found is extremely helpful in customizing your windows and it has alot of helpful tools to help/make the compy run better. It's cracked but pls don't turn me in im trying to be nice.
