Mark, have you tried the built-in Windows "Extended desktop" setting?
Right-click your desktop, Properties, Settings tab, click/highlight the
second screen, and check "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor."
It seems to remember settings for each display I connect it to.

I use it all the time so I can drive my laptop at 1900x1200 + an
external monitor at 1600x1200 or a projector at 1024x768 or whatever.
Nice as you can edit a PowerPoint on the laptop screen while previewing
it on the other.  Or watch a full-screen movie on one while checking
email the other.

Looks very useful.
Everyone I have seen with one is saying that the widescreens make coding
a lot better on the eyes / more real estate for IDE's.
I am getting one from Santa too.

I took a quick look at the program (online only)  because when I plug in
my thinkpad to an overhead from vendor XXX no matter what I seem to do,
I can not show optimal on the overhead and optimal on the local
thinkpad. Would be even NICER to show two different apps on the thinkpad
(with toggle capability) and the 1 app on the overhead.
Programs like this will probably make that happen.
