T500 Long Power down Issue

Hello everyone,

 

Just wanted to know if anyone has experienced an issue with the T500 having issues powering down.  I've ran into an issue where the docked T500 takes approximately 40 seconds to successfully powerdown, after Windows XP has successfully shutdown.  Any ideas would be greatly apprecitated...

Re: T500 Long Power down Issue

after the latest update of some windows software, the W500 at my company with XP has taken around 1 minute to power down... how long does it take to power down under safe mode. Most likely this is a software problem, but there are cases (not with Thinkpads) where i have seen that hardware problem is causing long delay in shutdowns.

Re: T500 Long Power down Issue

I'll be checking into the safe boot mode to determine if that may have anything to do with the powerdown issue.  I'm also going to try and powerdown the laptop, without the dock.  Maybe the docking station is causing some problems.
