I have the T400 w/ATI discrete graphics and the advanced dock. I have a monitor connected to the DVI on the dock. I have the graphics forced to "Discrete" in the BIOS.
When docked, I prefer the monitor to be the "main" monitor, with the notebook display as a secondary monitor with the desktop extended onto it. When undocked, the notebook is (obviously) the only display.
When I undock, everything works as expected - the display is moved / resized to fit on the notebook display.
When I re-dock, however, the video doesn't recover correctly. Instead of having the display extended onto it, the display is duplicated on both monitors. I have to go into the display settings every time to switch it back to the way I prefer.
How can I retain my preferred settings when I redock?

setup the display setting in your presentation director Fn +F7 and it would save your preferred setting, so next time it is just a job of pressing a few key to regain your preferred setting.

Gotcha.... I am running Windows 7 RTM which is apparently incompatible with Presentation Director. Thanks for the advise, though. I'll wait for a compatible version.
