Power outage while in dock

2008-11-19, 16:51 PM

Is it normal for a W500 docked to lockup during a momentary power outage? I would think if the dock lost AC power that the battery in the computer would prevent anything from happening.

 

The power went off for just a second today at work while I was using the computer (battery fully charged). When the power came back on the computer was totally frozen. Even opening the lid did nothing. After rebooting I pulled the power out of the dock to see if it was just a fluke. Again the computer totally froze.

 

Why doesn't the battery keep everything happy?
