I have a dual display setup with my laptop (Dell, with integrated graphics, WinXP). The problem is that whenever I hook up the laptop to the monitor I have to go to Graphics Properties (Intel Graphics Media Driver for Mobile) and set the display resolution, window position, etc. Note that this screen is different than the built-in one you usually see in WinXP.

1) Is there an app that can save display settings properly so they will come back when I dock again?

2) Barring this, run a script or a macro to automatically set up the display the way I want it.

3) Or, can I write a .Net program that does this for me?

Extra points if there is an Open source app that can do this.

Well, reminds me the terrific mac MarcoPolo application. We don't have (according to AlternativesTo ) a total equivalent. However, it seems like Quick Config contains quite all you need. Maybe by dropping a line at company/author he could give you what you need ...
