T510/Thinkpad Mini Dock/How to wake up from sleep

2010-12-31, 5:35 AM

Hi All,

 

I have my docking station set up to my new ThinkpadT510 and everything works, but after I put the computer to sleep in the docking station, I can not figure out how to wake it back up without having to open the lid of the computer.  Any ideas???? 

 

The instructions that come with the 433710U Thinkpad Mini Dock Series3 are just a bunch of diagrams, not much in the way of instructions and not everyone is a techie!!! :smileysad:

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Utahtea

you can set the power button the dock to function as a wake computer button under the windows power manager section and thinkvantage power manager. Give that a try.
