Stop UAC/Secure Desktop from dimming the screen
Just had to upgrade my office PC to Windows 7, and every time a program wants admin access it seems to enable a "secure desktop" which (for reasons that escape me) this involves telling the video card to shut off its output and then re-enable it, even though the screen resolution and other settings are entirely unchanged.
This process causes my monitor to lose sync and it takes about five seconds for the picture to return. Needless to say this is very distracting and slows me down considerably.
I know it is possible to disable the secure desktop, but I would rather leave it on if possible. I do however, want to stop Windows from resetting the video mode and to just leave the screen in its current mode.
So is it possible to leave UAC enabled, but prevent it from stuffing around with the video mode?
