"this is my main monitor" setting not retained after going into standby or logging off...

    I have a Dell Latitude 820 Laptop and 2407 Display on a docking station

    I use the 2407 as an external monitor. Every time I log off, or the computer
    is put in sleep/hibernate/restart/shutdown, the main monitor status returns
    to the
    laptop.

    Ironically, after logging on/restarting the PC, the menu bar and icons all
    correctly show on the external display.

    Then, a couple of seconds later, Windows gets all clever and pops it back
    onto the laptop display

    Is there anyway of making it stay with the external monitor?

    TIA
