SwitchRes is a totally configurable Control Panel, distributed with a Control Strip Module, which will allow you to control the resolutions of your monitors. You can define which resolutions are really accessible, and which will require a confirmation.
You can save the position of the icons on your desktop, independently from one resolution to the other, unlike the Finder. The position of the icons is restored at startup.
You can also create `display sets' which will allow you to change the resolution and the depth of all your monitors with one click.
You can assign a specific set to an application, so that every time you use this application, your Mac will automatically switch to predefined resolutions.
