I have a Edge 15 running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit and Office 2007, it runs extended desktop via the Lenovo USB Replicator, every now and again the Taskbar stops responding to mouse clicks as well as anything on the external screen, the mouse moves about on both screens fine and clicking works on any apps open on the laptop screen, at first I thought mouse problem so swapped mouse but the problem stayed, in the end I brought up the Task Manager via CTRL ALT DELETE and killed explorer.exe then went to run and restarted it, I am then able to use it normally as well as the external screen.
It happens about 2 or 3 times a week, I know its not a lot but its often enough that I'd like to know how to fix it!
If anyone has any ideas that would be great.

This usually happens when the shell is trying to access a resource that is busy (like a network drive or a CD-ROM). This is not related to your Thinkpad.. it's a Windows thing.
