View Full Version : [ubuntu] lenovo thinkpad intermittent docking station usb failure

February 23rd, 2012, 02:55 AM
Since some time ago I've noticed an intermittent failure of the USB ports on my Lenovo X201 docking station, which can only be remedied through a reboot. However, the external monitor which is connected to docking station remains active in these situations.

Aside from the minor inconvenience of having to save and shutdown every document prior to reboot, the major problem is that backup and sync operations to external hard-drives are compromised when this happens during a scheduled backup.

Has anybody had a similar problem or could please advise where to start diagnosing?
