I have a T61 that undocks without any problems.  But, when it is redocked, the eternal monitor won't turn on automatically.  I have to poke around in the presentation director to get the external monitor to turn on.  I tried using the nVidia software to setup a profile with the docked settings.  But, I couldn't find where to make it automatically use the profile I created.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Is there a firmware upgrade for the docking station?  You would have to run the IBM update program from the dock if there was one.

Bios update?  This problem seems like it has driver update written all over it.

Sorry, was on vacation.  I'll update the driver and see what happens.
