    I have an HP Elitebook and a docking station. When I place the laptop (or mobile workstation as it's called) in the docking station (with Windows) the 2 monitors come on and it remembers my settings. When disconnected my laptop remembers the regular settings and reverts to a 1 display layout. I was wondering if it's possible to make this combination work with Linux. Any ideas on how I can get this working?

    Little confusion. I can get 2 monitors working, my issue is that it changes a lot. I don't want to have to keep adjusting it all the time. I'm looking for a solution that will let me swap between the 2 and 1 display quickly.
