If anyone else has this setup and can post as to what's normal for 
gnome / debian it would be useful.

Does restarting X make things come alive, by chance?

'course, how do you know when to hit it? You can't see anything to 
know when it's completed waking up.

Kiwi, I see a number of docks at 
http://configure.us.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?oc=blct633&c=us&l=en&s=bsd&cs=04&model_id=latitude-e6320, 
which do you have.

I would have thought one monitor port would be a straight duplication 
of the laptop screen. Evidently that's not true, or would see at least 
one monitor light up / see it waking up.

Surely the dock doesn't have it's own video card in there. Which sort 
of implies both monitors could be directly connected to the laptop 
without the dock. Any way you could leave the lid closed and connect 
the monitors up directly, then open the lid and see what happens? i.e. 
If you observe different behaviour, then the dock itself is ... adding 
complexity / wrinkles to the situation.
