I've been looking for a way to trigger an application when I dock/undock my laptop.  Triggering based off battery/power cord is not an option.  Any ideas?

That's a nice idea.  Be able to control startup applications depending on if the laptop is docked or undocked.  Can this be tied to hardware profiles

Right click on "my computer" -> Hardware -> Hardware Profiles

Or in my case, detection of an externally connected monitor, or detection of ethernet cable

Some time ago I found out that USBDLM (USB Drive Letter Manager) by Uwe Sieber can actually also launch a program on docking/undocking in addition to react to drive connections.
