Description Viktor Jancik 2015-11-18 07:23:02 EST
Description of problem:
If I remove my Lenovo Thinkpad T450s from the Dock, with the lid closed (it's connected to external monitors) and subsequently open the lid, the screen is black. Not turned off, but black. And it doesn't turn on no matter what I do, only a hard reset helps.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Place a Thinkpad into a Dock connected to external monitors.
2. Close the lid.
3. Remove the Thinkpad from the Dock with the lid closed. (I have it configured so it doesn't lock or pause on lid close).
4. Open the lid.

Actual results:
The display stays black.

Expected results:
The display should light up and display the running gnome-shell session.

Additional info:
My hack around this is removing the laptop from the Dock with the lid open. If I do it like that, this problem never happens.
