Hello, hopefully someone can help with this, since the issue persists. I am using the USB 3.0 Ultradock, but the 3.0 docks on the x230 are not working properly.
Do I need to delete the generic USB 2.0 hubs? As a sysadmin, I know better, but I am so incredibly angry that Lenovo can't address such a simple issue that I'm willing to try anything at this point. Next step, of course, is to find a bloatware-free laptop that doesn't require 3 different update wizards (Windows, Lenovo, OEM) to operate, but since it's 2017 that may well be impossible so I'd better solve this problem (again) while I'm searching.
My x230 is using the default Windows drivers (dated 2006) and the generic USB 2.1 hub.

Using USBTreeView, I can see that the dock is utilizing USB 2.0 and 2.1, not 3.0. Potentially related, I regularly see extended, excessive CPU usage (25-40%) by the DisplayLinkManager and DisplayLinkUserAgent processes.
I can also say that after rebooting, the dock was using the Intel 3.0 USB drivers, so this is most likely an issue that arises after the laptop sleeps.
