I have a new Tablet and when I take it off the docking station to use the tablet in a meeting. I come back and put it on the docking station it doesn't act as if the docking station reconizes it. I have to do a restart and everything comes back. I have checked settings and also did the Function F5 to see if it shows on the monitor but the mouse and keyboard do not work.. Is there another setting I need to look at for this to reconize the docking station?

you have to copy the default machine profile and rename it docked. and the other undocked. when you dock a machine it uses different drivers for devices than when its not docked. make sure when you copy the profile it is docked when you do it.

Check in the BIOS or the Toshiba settings utility, there might be a setting to allow hot docking.  It is enabled by default in Windows 7, so this is likely to be a BIOS / hardware setting problem.
