I have a Sony laptop, it uses 1280x800 screen res from an intel 915gm
onboard graphics.

I have always used 915resoution like this:
# 915resolution 38 1280 800 24

Then edit /etc/init.d/bootmisc.sh and add the line:
/usr/sbin/915resolution 38 1280 800 24

Then I can ctrl+alt+backspace to restart x-server and get the new
resolution. Question is, this doesn't seem the right approach 'cause the
915res website says you need to edit xorg.conf and I have no idea

Also when the computer resumes from hibernate the screen res is not
correct but a standar 640x480. Have been living with this prob for a
year now, just install Edgy and would love to finally solve it :)

Thank you
