How to setup hardware profiles for docking and dual monitors
Posted on 2008-06-19
I have a Lenovo T61 laptop running Window XP. I have the following scenarios that I operate in:
1) Laptop by itself, not docked using primary monitor; optionally, a second monitor is connected but the laptop display remains the primary monitor
2) Laptop docked, with second keyboard, mouse and monitor, second monitor is primary monitor
My question is: How do I achieve this without having to go through display properties every time? Does using hardware profiles do anything for me? I don't really understand hardware profiles. I am willing to shutdown and restart every time I need to dock or undock. Undocking will often cause my system to go bonkers anyway.
