Default Looking for command line to change twinview resolution

I have an NVidia Quadro NVS 140M card in my Thinkpad. My laptop LCD can do 1280x800 max, but my external monitor (Dell 2007FP) can do much more than that. The problem is that whenever I connect/disconnect the external monitor, I have to launch the nvidia-settings GUI to change the resolution from 1600x1200 back down to 1280x800. I'm using dynamic twinview for these 2 displays. "xrandr -s" doesn't do the trick.

Does anyone know of a way to do what I need to do here?

Thanks!!

xrandr -s XxY --rate N
where with dynamictwinview enabled, N controls both the refresh rate and the screen the command will apply to

Hi lloeki!! Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to work for me:

Quote:
# xrandr -s 1280x800 --rate 51.0
Failed to change the screen configuration!
# xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 1280 x 800, current 1280 x 960, maximum 1280 x 960
default connected 1280x960+0+0 0mm x 0mm
1280x960 50.0* 51.0
1280x800 51.0
Any ideas? TIA!!! =
