    I've got a laptop running Win2k SP3. It has one hardware profile that seems to work OK, docked or undocked.

    For the most part.

    Now, I want to disable a piece of hardware only when the system is docked. I've created a new profile by copying the existing one, rebooting, manually selecting the "docked" profile, then modifing the device properties.

    This works, but I don't like the part about manually selecting the profile when I boot. Additionally, I'd like Win2k to automatically switch profiles if I suspend and undock (or dock) the system - without rebooting. This doesn't seem to happen.

    Should this work as I described? Is this a pipe dream? Should I resign myself to always rebooting the system after changing docking status?
