Hello! I am having a problem when using my T410[2516CTO] on my Mini Dock Plus. I have had both items less than three days, shipped directly from Lenovo. Searching the forum hasn't proven fruitful, so I thought I'd post. The situation:
Dock is powered with standard 90W adapter.
Connect T410 to dock
Power manager on laptop shows that it is connected to a powered adapter
Laptop does not charge from powered dock
Battery is continually drained
Reboot, then connect - no change
Boot up on dock - no change
Battery gauge reset - no change
Power setting "When lid closed, do nothing" - no change
Hi, I'm also having some of the same problems with a T510 and an extended 9-cell battery. Power Manger 3.30 indicates that when my T510 is on my Series 3 mini dock plus, the 90W adapter is attached, but time required to fully charge is set at 0 and charge completion time is -nil-. The Power Manager Icon in my toolbar (running Windows 7) also changes to the "charging" plug, but the battery keeps discharging, no AC power.
When I plus the 90W adapter directly to my computer, the battery recharges as normal (see the "time to fully charge", charge completion time, etc.)
Not sure if the Dock is defective, or if it's my BIOS (recently upgraded over the last few days) - I just got my Dock and was trying it out for the first time when I noticed this. Anyone have any ideas?
