Many of my co-workers and myself have a constant problem with docking and undocking our dell notebooks. Our company requires that we run a broad catalog software that starts at boot; but logically I would not think that any program should cause problems when docking or undocking.
Basically the problem is that we all have to move around multiple times a day. But, our office area is easier to code at so we’ll all head here to use our dual monitors when we are coding. Unfortunately, when docking and undocking we frequently loose functionality of our mouse, dual monitor output, and USB thumb drives. The thumb drives and mouse are USB, so perhaps there is a connection?
Has anybody ever had these problems and taken the time to track down what exactly the culprit is? Windows? Some third party Software? Hardware?
If your going to post that it’s a window malfunction please go into detail, I’m interesting in knowing the discrete OS design flaw. If you’ve ran across software that has had this side-effect feel free to drop name, and explanation of its design flaw as well.
