Portable Does Not Connect Through Docking Station NIC After Hibernation

Article ID: 247153

Article Last Modified on 11/1/2006



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional Edition



This article was previously published under Q247153

SYMPTOMS

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.

CAUSE

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.

RESOLUTION

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

STATUS

This behavior is by design.
