I have my powerbook screen rez set at 1440 X 900 and the O/S graphics and text look crisp and clean... but as soon as I switch down to 1152 X 720 or any other rez, everything gets a little fuzzy/blurry including application icons on the dock and all the text.

I'm just going to assume that you have the 17" powerbook. it happened on my friends PB but we just decided that it was because it was such a huge screen and trying to get it so small was just so out of the question, thus the screen couldn't really handle it. but then again, that's just kinda talking out of my **** and trying to make up excuses for some sketchy things..
EYPowerBook G4. iLove it.

why would you want it smaller?....smaller resolution means less pixels, means less detail, means more blury, etc etc.....that screen is built for highest resolution, and if you lower it..it's going to be less perdy, but I don't know that it should be blury.

Note that ALL LCD monitors works this way, not just laptops. CRT monitors use a completely different technology, and thus are able to display all lower resolutions with no problem.
