Primary screen on a laptop disabed after sleep in dual screen setup


I am used to using a dual screen setup with my asus z96j laptop. I have a secondary viewsonic display attached to my vga port. After installing windows 7 i have noticed, that after my main screen is turned off (such as when my computer goes to sleep, or when the lid is closed) it would not power up again. Instead, it recognizes the secondary display as primary - moving the taskbar and icons onto that display.

Under display settings it only shows "Generic non-pnp monitor", whereas before i could select both screens. My computer is using ATI x1600 mobility chipset.

Any recommendations?

Forgot to mention that reboot fixes this.
