I'm trying to solve a little problem I'm having with my Laptop.
Here's some general info:

Before reporting problems, check http://wiki.x.org
to make sure that you have the latest version.
When I'm using my laptop at work I keep it in a Docking Station which has my monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc...
And the problem I'm running into is that whenever I have to go to a meeting or anything like that where I may
need to bring it with me I need to either restart to whole computer all together or take it out of the Docking
Station and issue "CTR+ALT+Backspace". Or go into "nvidia-settings" and 'enable' my laptop screen then issue a
restart of X.
All of those options above are kind of a pain in the butt..!!
And obviously when you do either of these things you will have to close everything out first and start over
again after the reboot...
Does anyone know if when for instance, if I put the laptop to "sleep" or "hibernate", would it "re-read" the
xorg.conf file..? In other words does Xserver sort of "restart" when you come back after putting it to sleep/hibernate?
Because I'm thinking about scripting this out, where I might possibly replace the config file before putting it
to sleep, then upon awakening it would re-read the config file.
I got this idea from this link here (http://www.geekwisdom.com/dyn/node/241
), but it doesn't work for my laptop even though it is also a Dell Latitude Laptop. I believe that he used xrandr and a bash script to accomplish it.
Must be have been done on an older version.
Any suggestions would be great...
Thanks in Advance,
