Every time I undock & redock my computer Plug and Play reconfigures devices incorrectly - I can get everything to work if I manually tweak my device config - Is there any way to completely disable PNP & use my exiting configuaration without any changes?

jmccsd,
If you are sure you want to disable Plug and Play, Go to your systems bios and find "PnP BIOS Auto-Config". There you can enable or disable PnP.
 I have an award bios, and AMI may or other may not say
"PnP BIOS Auto-Config", but the option is still there.
You can always enable it again.
