Heyho Chris,

I mostly use the fullscreen mode and for me it works perfectly. Whenever I dock
my laptop at the docking station, a script automatically enables the bigger
stationary screen and disables the internal screen of the laptop with xrandr.
This also works the other way around when unplugging the laptop from the dock.
Fullscreen windows (at least st and surf) adapt to the change without issues.
However I am running a slightly outdated version of dwm with a few patches, but
none which fixes that problem explicitly.
