Simple Docking Station Problem

I'm struggling to do something that sounds as if it should be quite simple.

I have a Sony Vaio laptop connected via a docking station and DVI to an external LCD monitor. Everytime I undock and redock, I have to readjust my settings. When docked I want the display on the external monitor only at the highest resolution, when undocked obviously the laptop's own display only at highest settings.

Would DisplayFusion allow me to save settings for docked and undocked, and if so which version would I need?

Vista Business 32, NVIDEA

I know it's probably a stupid question, but surely somone can answer it.

TBH, I believe this would be a laptop setting itself, so that it would auto sense when something is attached to the external display in the docking station and switch over to it.

AFAICT DF does not accommodate actual display settings themselves, meaning it does not keep track of what monitor is primary / enabled and what is not. Jon can probably answer this more thoroughly than this, I am sure, so here's to hoping he sees this soon.
I am I.

John is correct - this is a windows configuration issue - DisplayFusion cannot help you with this problem and we currently do not have plans in our development road map to address this issue.

I will however mention this to Jon.

If you are using the latest version of DisplayFusion and would still like some assistance, please create a new topic and I'll be happy to help you out. Thanks!
