    Hi,

    I just recently got a dock for my 2740p and I've been using it with an external monitor. The screen rotates to portrait mode when it is docked with the lidclosed and then undocked and lid opened.

    I saw a support document that HP has posted that is relevant. I do not use use two external monitors, just one. Their "solution" really is crap, too, as it requires you to disable automatic screen rotation. This also disables it when you want to go from laptop to tablet mode.

    Has anyone experienced this and know how to fix it?

    I see the same behaviour with my 2730p when undocking (without external monitor). I usually close the unit and place it in the dock to charge overnight.

    I've just lived with it, to switch back to landscape just Ctl+Alt+Up arrow.

    I do the same. It is extremely annoying, though. I can't believe they would leave it in for so long and over multiple models.
