While your computer resumes from Standby mode, your computer may stop responding (hang) if a removable device is installed, such as an LS-120 floppy disk drive used with an IBM docking station.


This problem can occur when the controller for the removable device does not complete the last request before your computer enters Standby mode, and access to the controller is not in the correct state when your computer returns from Standby mode.
