x301 USB Port Replicator

2010-05-28, 14:39 PM

How do I disconnect from the port replicator? Can I just "pull the plug" or do I have to shut down first? In my previous Thinkpads there was a button to click to prepare the machine to disconnect.

The USB Port Rep as a standalone device is hot-swapable....so it can just be unplugged.

 

Having said that...before pulling the plug, perform the following operations first:

1)  Stop external USB video

2)  Stop any USB devices attached to the Port Rep (i.e. HDD, ODD, etc)

 

Regards

How would I stop the video? I just have it hooked up to one monitor.

The USB Port Rep software installer puts an icon in your system tray.  If you right-click this icon, you have many options for setting external monitor resolution, etc. 

 

Here you will also find the option to stop USB video...this will end output to the external monitor and default all video back to the notebook LCD.

 

Regards
