Reboot instead of shutdown when it is docked

That's basically the problem

Computer laptop x 240

Dock: Thinkpad Dock Pro (40-1 M20) this is important cause, the firmware update tools should be for this version (m20 40a 1) if someone has a link to it.

I do not have this link:

But in the case where it does not work I would like to update the firmware of the Dock.

If anyone has a guide to the (40A 1 m20 Pro Dock) model I'll appreciate it.

  • Tecra A10 - how to disable the fingerprint reader when it is docked


    I use a Tecra A10 with a 2 Express Port Replicator.
    How can I disable the fingerprint reader when it is docked and still use it when undocked?

    Thanks for your help


    As far as I know that something like this is not possible.
    Following this logic, it will be possible to have access to protected files when the laptop is on docking station.

    Either you use fingerprints or not.

  • Tecra 8000 TV out when it is docked

    The docking station for the doen't Tecra8000 replicate the TVout connector, but I have a cable to right angle that matches the TV normal port when connected and allows the cable out the host unit. TV connector normally output is disabled when it is docked and is there a setting in the registry or something in 98SE to re - activate?

    I connect my Tecra to a TV to watch DivX movies on the big screen, with the audio goes to my stereo, but I need to use the device with the Replicator, because the server containing my video files on a network, so I need the capacity of the network. I COULD use a network adapter, but then that beats the purpose of a docking station with the LAN!

    Retro Hi

    I'm a bit confused. As much as I know some Tecra 8000 have no LAN card. If your camera has card LAN and LAN port why you n t plug it directly into the TV and LAN without Port Replicator?

    I'm not sure if the port is disabled, but you can test if you can 100%. If there is no success, you must use the PCMCIA network adapter.

    Good bye

    With Docking Station, you can connect all the cables for printer, keyboard and mouse, adapter directly to the charging station.

    So whenever you use a laptop, you have just dock the laptop on the docking station and not need to re connect all cables again.

    This will help you when you move frequently with the laptop.

    Docking station will save your time, outside any other aspect, that it has to offer.

  • VB 6 application on Windows 7 64 bit turns black instead of white when active control

    Our VB 6 application shows a simple form with a few text controls and radio buttons.  Text controls is by default disabled (gray), but when the user changes an option button, the control is enabled if the user can enter some data into it.  On a Windows 7 64-bit workstation, the control becomes black instead of white when turned on, then the user is unable to see what they type into it.  Y at - it any resolution to this problem?  The form works very well with Windows XP and also works very well on a Windows 2008 R2 64-bit server.

  • Wireless mouse does not work when it is docked.

    I have a new laptop Latitude E7440, with a mouse Dell Wireless and E-series docking station.  When it is docked, the wireless mouse is disabled.  Receiver must USB mouse be connected to the docking station to make it work? It would be quite embarrassing.

    Thank you


    Hi dwells1957,

    Thanks for the post! Looks like you might have the USB receiver connected to the USB ports on the back of the system? While anchored feature transfers E7440 of ports at the back of the unit to the Wharf (by disabling these ports).

    Rear ports Latitude E7440 & E7240 system are disabled when it is docked on an E-port I / II or E-port Plus I / II

    If you connect the USB receiver on the dock or on the USB port on the side of the system, it should work correctly when it is connected to the docking station.

    Kind regards

  • Wireless issues when it is docked

    I have a Dell E5540. I recently put in place to host after the dock for more than a year. The issue I'm having is that when the laptop is connected my wireless connection is going to almost nothing. Less than half a Meg.

    When I leave the dock wireless jumps to normal. Read about it, I found a 'solution '. If I open the lid of the computer laptop while its anchored my wireless is normal... close it... and his return to zilch.

    I think it's a setting somewhere, but so far, nothing works.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you

    Hi mcftlf,

    Thanks for posting.

    The antenna for the without wire is located in the lid, so when it is closed, it does not receive a good signal.  Opening the lid exposes the antenna to the area of signal more to pick up the wifi signal.  Best way to solve this problem is to use a wired connection, when it is docked, or open the cover.

    Try to start with clean boot and the removal of all external devices (except keyboard and mouse).  Then, after that the PC is running for a few minutes, try and closed.  See if you get a different result.  Also, make sure that you are up-to-date with the Windows updates, and hardware drivers.

  • W30T-A-101 - battery #2 satellite: Absent - even when it is docked

    After his return from the first W30T-A-101 because of his failure, we are now on a second unit.

    The second unit appears not to recognise the second battery in the keyboard; or there is a problem with Windows 8.1 and the material.

    Battery #1 watch load/load in connected or disconnected mode.

    Battery No. 2 is ALWAYS showing "Absent" even when the section of the Tablet is rooted in the keyboard.

    As suggested on the forums, we have detached and rebooted, to no avail.

    Toshiba failed to load the required drivers, or think that we still have another laptop with a failure?

    Satellite W30T has a power supply in the screen and another unit of battery in the base.
    Usually the two batteries must be present and must be recognized and billed.

    Please note that there are two connectors DC: one in the Tablet and the second in the keyboard dock.
    Please connect the power adapter into the keyboard dock to check the State of charge of battery.

  • iPhone 7 creation of a circuit when on a dock

    Here's a weird one for you...

    I just got my iPhone 7, and everything of fine. What is strange is that when he's on the dock (one official apple) and connected to a power supply, the back of the phone vibrates as I slide a finger or fingers (I tried with 3) top. This does not reach the screen and doesn't happen if I also touch the metal casing with a finger of the other hand at the same time. I guess I'm creating a circuit which is triggering the haptic motor which works only when it is connected to the power? It's strange. I even if it was defective at first, thinking he was going to vibrate a little all the time is on the dock, but realized that happens when I touch and move my fingers softly through the body.

    Can any who else reproduce it, or is mine just special?

    It's something because he does, if I touch it with both hands, to complete the circuit, and it only when not connected to the electric/static.

    Just it takes off from the wharf, used another socket, USB plug and cable lighting. Put the phone on the couch face and ran my finger on it... doing the same thing! My wife came in one I tried. Done here also. I touch it with his index finger on his left hand and run his right index finger to the back, and he has ceased to be. Once she took her left index finger he started to do it again.

    The vibration feels stronger at the top of the phone.

    We had Antennagate, now Vibratorgate! Laughing out loud
