  My newer (dearly departed - snifsnif) Thinkpad A21M was used at home with
a large monitor and at work standalone. With the FN-monitor set to default
to the external, nonetheless if it detected no plug in the DB15, the LCD
came on w/out needing to be manually switched.

   Now, on the Dell Latitude, the same occurs, save that the LCD is active
for a short time during the boot process.

  This is all under Win2KPro.



PS: has Stuff for older IBM laptops, FYI.
