On my Lexbook (made by Lexmark, which I believe is a subsidiary of IBM),
the key sequence is <Func> <F7>. The <F7> key has tiny printing on it, in
the same color as the <Func> key, "CRT/LCD." I only had to use this key
combination once - now it detects what's attached and acts accordingly.
Doesn't your documentation tell you this?
