Laptop docking problem video display

  morris948 20:24 02 Mar 2008

I have a Siemens lifebook E laptop, and whenever i dock it back onto its station, i have to keep pressing 'Fn' F10 to enable it to display to my monitor, not a big problem, but is there a way of configuring it to not behave this way, it's just that the docking station which has a monitor mounted above it, makes it difficult to open the laptop lid to press the function F10 keys.

any ideas?

How have you set up the display external display only or laptop & external?

I believe if set for external only it will default back to the laptop display once you remove

it from docking station

OK, so you are saying if i cycle the key strokes to switch the laptop display on with the monitor display on as well, it should remember the setting when powered off and on.
once this has been set, is this function stored in ROM so it knows to remember this?

i will give it a try,
