Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Try removing all the USB devices in Windows Device Manager with the laptop docked. To do this: Right-click My Computer, left click Manage. On the right side of the window, click Device Manager. On the right side, click the + sign next to USB Devices. Highlight each device under this heading and hit Delete on your keybaord to remove all the devices in order. Then right-click Computer at the top of the list and click Scan for Hardware Changes.
Hopefully Windows will re-detect your USB devices and get them back operational.
Hope this helps!

I was having the same problem - the USB ports seemed to have stopped working so I could not use the mouse, keyboard, or printer, even though the monitors and power could still operate through the docking station. Finally, I just unplugged the docking station for 30 seconds, plugged it back in, and everything resumed working. I was surprised it was that simple, but it's working for the moment.

I had the exact same problem. When i undocked the laptop i had to reboot it when i put it back, in order to get the USB devices working. By updating the System Interface Driver, located here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-67228.html , the USB devices now power back up when you redock the laptop without having to reboot the machine.
