      Description

      Minecraft doesn't run above 60Hz in windowed mode (both, linux and windows), debug mode is reporting 120fps anyway.
      Switching to fullscreen may fix this and it actually runs at 120.
      Doing this will reset the color settings of the nvidia driver. (this part doesn't happen with linux)

      When exiting Minecraft, it doesn't just reset the color settings to default (windows only), but changes the refresh rate to auto (which is 60Hz) (both, Windows and Linux). Very annoying, because whenever I play Minecraft, I have to change display settings.

      This bug sometimes appears just by exiting fullscreen.

      I've tried some alpha and beta versions, too. Same problem, looks like it has been there in every version. There is a solution: killing java (KILL) instead of clicking on quit game.
      Then it's just gone and everything works as it should. Is there some way to make minecraft quit like this without using a terminal or ksysguard?

      As I said, fullscreen mode doesn't work in 1.7+ at all, whatever I do. Please, fix these problems!

      The problem when exiting Minecraft 1.6.4 or lower doesn't appear on all >60Hz setups, but it's there on every setup with 1.7+. Fullscreen issue reproducable on every linux >60Hz setup using nVidia GPUs (not tested with AMD or Intel), same for windows. Not tested with OSX or others.
