Docking the ThinkPad X4 Dock - ThinkPad X41 Tablet

Warning: Disconnect the AC adapter power connector from your computer before you attach the ThinkPad X4 Dock. The AC adapter connector will be damaged if it remains connected to the computer during the attachment.

Hot or Warm attach (docking)
If you are using Microsoft Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows XP, you may be able to hot attach or warm attach the computer to the ThinkPad X4 Dock. Hot attach is attaching the computer to the ThinkPad X4 Dock while in operating mode. Warm attach is attaching the computer to the ThinkPad X4 Dock while in standby mode.

Hot attaching
In Windows 2000 or Windows XP, the status indicator of the ThinkPad X4 Dock should turn on after a few seconds. For operating systems other than Windows 2000 and Windows XP, an OK message should appear after the device status window of the ThinkPad X4 Dock pops up. Also, the status indicator of the ThinkPad X4 Dock should turn on.

Warm attaching
When the computer returns from standby mode, the status indicator of the ThinkPad X4 Dock should turn on.
Note: To check whether hot/warm attach is enabled:

  1. Click Start, select All Programs, select Access IBM, and then click ThinkPad Configuration.
  2. Click Device bay.
  3. Make sure that the display shows Enable. If it does not, select Enable from the drop-down menu, and restart your computer to make the change effective.
