I am trying to set up my Dell M4600 Laptop with Fedora 17. I installed and everything looks good. But when I do the system it does not seem to understand that it is docked.

After some tinkering I have set the displays and fedora sees the displays as Dell 24 inch monitors. I set the laptop screen to off, and set the monitors how I would like them (1920x1080 side by side).

The problem is that every once in a while the graphics will just freeze. The system still responds via ssh, the mouse still moves around the screen but I can not click on anything. Also sometimes when coming out of sleep mode only one monitor will come back on. This is usually not the primary monitor which leaves me with no way click anything.

I am familiar with xorg.conf, but that seems to be depreciated in F17. Is there a way I can statically set these settings?
