    scaling issue after wake from sleep


    Asus Zenbook ux301LA, i5 Haswell, Intel graphics HD4400, Win 8.1 x64, 2560x1440 display. It came with Win 8, I updated to 8.1

    After wake from sleep the scaling is way off, everything is tiny... So I can't use sleep, must do a full shutdown and restart to get back to normal resolution.

    Asus does not list any graphics drivers for 8.1, only 8. So I got a generic Intel HD graphics driver update from Intel but it didn't fix the issue.

    The other strange thing is that it is time dependent. IOW if I wake it soon after I put it to sleep it restores to the correct resolution state. But if I wait longer it doesn't. I put it to sleep and woke it up multiple times and it seems like the change happens after it has been sleeping for about an hour... although I can't say for sure it is always exactly on that schedule. What could be changing in the system while asleep that would do this???

    In a way this isn't a big deal since this thing boots up from full shutdown almost as fast as from sleep. But I had intended to use sleep without a password so I don't have to constantly enter that while home, but keep the password on full start up.

    OK, I just did a search and see several of my Asus Zenbook brethren and sistren have the same issue. I'll try the power saver solution posted here and see if that solves it for me.

    The tip in the thread linked above to switch the sleep setting in the Power4Gear utility from instant on to long standby did the trick. No idea why but I am marking this one solved...
