Thinkpad 600x Win XP install

I found that win XP home installed just fine and dandy and seemed to detect everything, but if I put the machine into standby and resumed afterwards, the screen would just be grey vertical lines. You could still shut the machine down by pressing the appropriate keys, so it wasn't crashed.

The only fix I've found is that when you have the grey lines to press Fn-F7 twice to flip to the external VGA port and back. The screen then works fine.

For reference I've installed the Thinkpad Utilities and the XP supplement from IBM. I even tried using the Win2k video driver.
