JSI Tip 4686. Hot docking does NOT switch your screen resolution?

When you hot dock your laptop, the screen resolution (and refresh) does NOT change to the settings for your external monitor?

Unfortunately, hardware profile information is not parsed during a hot docking operation.

To switch video modes, use any of the following:

- Use the Fn+\{function key\} defined by your hardware manufacturer.

- Right-click a blank area on your desktop and press Properties. Use the Settings tab.

- Restart your computer.
