Display changes too many times when docked

2008-06-09, 12:46 PM
When I dock my X61, the external monitor (by default set to 1440x900) flashes 3-4 times right after I push the button on the docking station, each time changing back and forth from 1024x768 to 1440x900.   This takes around 90 seconds, while preventing a login until it is done refreshing the screen.   It would be nice if it would cycle just once from the 1024x768 of the Thinkpad LCD to the external monitor setting of 1440x900.    Any settings that would cause the monitor to cycle multiple times before I have a chance to log in from the docking station?   
Full disclosure: Not a Lenovo employee, just someone with a X61 running Win XP SP2
