different setttings for viewing distances?

Hi all, earlier on today my keyboard went kaput after the typical lager spill from the night before you hoped didn't do any damage. Any way i went to argos and got a labtec wireless keyboard and mouse set for £30. What i was wondering is when i sit at my pc the screen (17" tft) is great at it's top resolution of 1280 x 1024. Howver the keyboard has a massive range and i found is just as responsive 4 metres away but the screen resolution has to be turned down to 800 x 600 to be comfortable to read from that distance. Is there any programme, tweak, fiddle or way round whereby i could switch between the two resolutions with going into the display properties. (ps Sofa is a hell of a lot more comfy than my chair)

The ATI utility which came with my Radeon card allows me to set up various schemes as you describe - what card do you have?
