I've got a laptop with an extra external screen attached to it. Whenever I try to maximize a window on the second screen by dragging it to the top of it the window maximizes to my laptop screen. Is there a solution to this?

It works as expected for me, it maximizes the window to the screen where I move the window. Could it be a video driver problem (I have Intel video card)?. – Javier Rivera Jun 13 '12 at 8:37
