I’ve had this docking station hooked up to my Lenovo Yoga 720 laptop for 6 weeks without any issues. Starting a few days ago my laptop began taking several minutes to resume from hibernation while connected to this station. Same with cold boots - i hear the fans working overtime for several minutes before the boot screen even appears. If I resume from hibernate or cold boot while either the stock charger is plugged in or when unplugged the computer resumes immediately. Even If I boot directly into the bios while plugged into the docking station the fan goes crazy and things are sluggish, so I don’t think this is a Windows problem.
Furthermore, even after the laptop has resumed the mouse and keyboard are frozen for about 30 seconds. Then I get a Windows error about a usb device failing, and then things work fine. I have the latest Windows updates and DisplayLink drivers installed. I have factory reset my laptop twice, thinking this was a Windows issue, but I am convinced this is a docking station issue.
I’m past my 30 day mark so I can’t return this, but I really don’t want to throw out a $200 station and start over. Any suggestions?
