Recently there has been ThinkPad Docking Station firmware update posted on the Web.
Have you tried this firmware and still see the issue?
Also Thunderbolt firmware update contains some dock related fix according to Readme file. This is also worth trying if you haven't.

Thanx for tips, but...
- I have already newer version of drivers

@richk: does this kind of advice help often?

Take a look at this thread. I had problems with Linux Mint but I solved it with the Thunderbold FW Update and changing the BIOS settings

So....are we to just live with this? I am in and out of my office often and wanted to be more fluid and just grab my laptop and roll. Now I hav eto unplug, re plug. Not a big deal, but I spent almost 300 on a dock for this convenince and now just have a plastic object taking up more desk space. Are there any Lenovo Reps that frequent these forums to offer help and advice?

Well...I am currently typing from my wireless keyboard with the dongle plugged INTO THE DOCK AND ITS WORKING! I just ran updates for my system for about 45 mins. After multiple updates, reboots, and completion, it works again!! I used the Lenovo System update program from the supprt section of this website.
