I have a Lenovo ThinkPad W510 with Windows XP. Anyways, I noticed when docked, there is no functionality to undock. What I mean is if Igoto Start, there's the logoff and shut down options, but no undock. Previous models such as the x60 series or the X200 series have this. This is typically Thinkvantage Software called Easy Eject Utility. Normally when you run install and run ThinkVantage Update, you'll see this and be able to download and install.  I did a search for the Easy Eject Utility on the Lenovo Website and although I found the latest version, I did not see compatible for the W510, everythinig but my model.  Has anybody encoutered this problem or know of a solution?

Do you have the Mini Dock Plus Series 3?

Check in your system properties under hardware profiles.
Check the profile to see if it is checked as a portable computer.

If not check it and then reboot.  It should then create both a docked and undocked profile.

What happens when you hit the function and F9 key (that is the shortcut to undock)?

Can you manually download it from the web and install?

Unfortunately, its sounds like it is not possible.  I had a similar problem with one of there e series (home) machines where they just didn't support/or had written the program for it.
