Nice unobtrusive utility that works as advertised.

Especially impressed with the responsiveness of the developer. Tried loading it on an old G4 I have here for games and it wouldn't stay running. Sent them a support ticket from their website in the evening, had a reply and a bugfix the next morning. Can't ask for better than that!

Display Maestro is a small application which can be configured to launch during login, and sits quietly in the menu bar. Upon exit, it will also automatically revert your display back to the resolution chosen before it was launched.
