How to I keep my desktop icons from going crazy when I remove laptop from docking station?

I have my laptop inserted into a docking station at work and have organized my desktop icons in a certain order, however, when I remove the laptop from the docking station and use it on its own the icon order gets scrambled all over the place.  How can I keep my icon layout consistent between both environments?

When you have your laptop docked are you using a different resolution then undocked?

1) Consider setting up seperate hardware profiles if you have not done so already.

second option si to find a free or pay program that will let you save/ restore desktop/icon settings.

I hope this helps !

w33mhz, no i do not change the resolution
