Question

Ok here's my setup:
Laptop running windows vista.
Samsung External monitor screen res at 1440x900
Samsung 40inch lcd tv with pc input (vga)

I mainly have my monitor hooked up to my laptop and use the monitor as the default because it is easier to use than my tiny laptop screen. When I want to watch a movie i have to unplug my monitor and plug in my tv to the vga slot and reconfig all the setting to get the resolution right on to my tv. Basically its a pain in the ***.

So... I bought a monitor sharing switch, basically a kvm switch but it only has vga ports (3) 1 for the pc, 1 for my tv and 1 for my monitor.

Since my monitors max resolution is 1440x900 and I like my tv on 1920x1080 when i switch the source over to my tv from my monitor the resolution is all messed up and i still have to go in a fix the screen res.

Is there smart piece of hardware or software that when i switch over to my tv it knows or remembers that i want the res at 1920x1080 and then when i switch back to my monitor it remembers to go back to 1440x900?
