Hello, I am getting unhappy results with my newly purchased docking station.
ThinkPad T60 2007-C4U
Operating system: Vista Business (came originally with xp pro, recently i formatted, and installed Vista)
Description: T2500(2GHz), 1.5GB RAM, 80GB 5400rpm HD, 14.1in 1400x1050, 64MB ATI Radeon X1300, CDRW/DVDRW, Intel 802.11abg wireless, Bluetooth/Modem, 1Gb Ethernet, UltraNav, Secure chip, Fingerprint reader, 6c Li-Ion batt
My docking station: ThinkPad Advanced Mini Dock with US/Canada/LA Line Cord
Anyway, wonderful things happen each time I dock or undock.
For example when I undock by hitting button1(this is a button on docking station that releases the comp software wise) and waiting for button2 to turn green (this means its safe to hit button2 which will release the laptop physically), my laptop freezes for a good 5 seconds or so after I have lifted it up. Then it resumes to my control.
Sometimes I get another wonderful surprise, like when I just docked my laptop, my ThinkPad trackpoint (red button thing in middle of keyboard) is not functioning. So I assume i have to restart to get it working. Obviously this is not wanted functionality.
(i just undocked and docked again to see if in any state it would resume working, but no go. so it is actually not working in either state now.. probably need restart)
Anybody have a problem like this ?
I know that the freezing thing didn't always happen. When I first had gotten it 2 weeks ago it was fine. It is just a recent thing. Perhaps because I had a lot of apps running? I have outlook, a few chat programs, WMP, eclipse, a couple of IE windows.
Oh perhaps another relevant piece of info is what i have connected to the dock. i have a printer and cam (both usb), lan connection, speakers. So each time i dock and undock it needs to disc itself from the USBs properly.
Thats all i can think of to share.
