I'm not aware of a way to resize the underlying virtual desktop space when switching resolutions. I was under the impression from some earlier posts, and other resources that doing so isn't supported in a useable way (in XFree86 itself).

You might consider using two X servers instead, keeping one at the lower resolution and the other at full LCD resolution. I believe this is possible but have not done so myself. Another option might be defining a second screen on the same X server (a recent post regarding multiple screens on several monitors had some good information on setting up screens).
