When entering my laptop into the docking station and i wake him up from sleep it takes many time to have inputs

my company uses mostly Lenovo laptops (Many X220) with WIN7 OS
when entering the laptop into the docking station and the laptop is in sleep mode , when i open the laptop it takes sometimes 30-600 seconds until the keyboard and mouse start to work ?

is it a driver issue ?
can it be solved ?

Are you suspending? or hibernating?  The time seems normal for hibernating?

its not hibernation...its Sleep - i assume its suspending
i'm talikng from the moment the laptop is up , than it takes another X time until all my input devices are recognized
but even if i take it out for a meeting, coming back to my room and re-enter it into the docking (when its up and running), sometimes it happens..

I have not have ThinkPad suspend / resume problems for many years and ThinkPads.

Try taking the machine out of the Dock, then restart it, then suspend it and then resume. Do you have issues this way of doing it?
