Switch res. on docking bay


Apple lover, PC User
Hello Everyone,

My dad has his laptop and his house, so basically when he comes home from a day of using it he puts it in his docking bay and starts it up. He has a nice 17" IBM LCD hooked up to his docking bay, that he likes to have 1280x1024, however when he just has the laptop, without the docking bay he wants the resolution 1024x768. Can anyone provide a method, or a program that will allow this change? He would usally reboot when switching...

Good grief Charlie Brown
If he wants to set up another user account he can use XP Keep per User Display Settings. Freeware.

"This applet allows each separate user of a Windows XP computer to have her/his separate settings for the display resolution, color depth and refresh rate. When Fast User Switching is used, the display settings change automatically when switching among users. This brings to XP a feature that was much relied upon in home environments running Windows 9x/ME."

No can do since it's a company laptop, and it's logged into domains and such, too much of a hassel for that. Other ideas?
