Dell C600 eject from docking station prob

This was one big convoluted message about 5 different problems, but I decided to split them up into 3 messages. I have solved two of them already.

The computer: A Dell Latitude C600 (P-III @ 1GHz w/ 512 MB RAM & 20GB HDD, ATI Mobility 3 video card, Maestro ESS sound & 3COM 10/100 NIC) with a docking station. The docking station has a Dell 17" monitor, PS/2 mouse, PS/2 keyboard, a USB CD-RW & a 3COM NIC (detected as eth1 and the built in NIC is eth0).

OS: Debian Sarge (2.6.8-2-686) & KDE 3.3

The problem: When I hit the "eject" button on the docking station, my computer locks up for a minute or two and then resumes instead of going into standby to be ejected. How can I put my laptop into standby mode for ejection and how do I get it to switch from using the 17" monitor to the LCD when I do?

Thanks in advance
