I am writing a service that uses the second monitor as a notice board the
service runs okay if started when a user logs on. however the screen is
blanked when the user logs out. is there any way a service can take charge of
the second monitor

Services accessing the Desktop (generally)? Bad Idea.

Services written in VS2005/Framework 2.0 accessing the Desktop?
/If/ I've been hearing correctly, *cannot* be done!

Separate out the GUI and Service elements and get them talking to one
another (via Remoting, or whatever).

HTH,
