When you place an undocked portable computer running Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional into hibernation mode and then dock the computer, the computer cannot connect through the docking station network adapter after it comes out of hibernation.


This behavior occurs when you attempt warm docking (docking or undocking while a portable computer is in hibernation mode) on a portable computer that has an advanced power management basic input/output system (APM BIOS). Windows 2000 supports warm docking only on portable computers running an advanced configuration power interface (ACPI) BIOS.


To work around this behavior, restart the portable computer and then connect through the network adapter on the docking station.


This behavior is by design.
