Default CRT/LCD switch not working (Dell D620, i8500)

I have to Dell Laptops Running FC5. When I'm in the office I usually plug them in to a 21" CRT monitor. I need to plug the monitor before I boot up and its fine.

However it would be useful to be able to switch to the internal CRT monitor using the CRT/LCD hot key so I can pick it up to go to meeting etc. When I press the CRT/LCD key (Fn+F8) the screen flickers but I'm still on the CRT monitor.

The ReadMe for the drivers seem to state this should be supported as long as I've not configured Twin View which I haven't

Dell D620 NVS 110m ( also suspend doesn't work :-( )
Del I8500 GeForce Go ( suspend works :-)

Any suggestions ?

Thanks
Andy

This is a known bug. You can usually work around it by using TwinView with a NULL mode in your MetaModes.

Could you maybe give an example of what this would look like in xorg.conf?
