2) With the PHOTON on its lockscreen,plug it into the LAPDOCK.

3) Press the power button on the PHOTON to turn the screen off,but,leave the phone on & place in the phone cradle.

4) Open the lid & the LAPDOCK 500 should power on within 30 seconds or less.

When exiting the LAPDOCK 500,close all windows on the webtop,minimize, & do the same w/the phone.

I know these steps aren't written in any user manual(there aren't any meaningful manuals to be found,just a few basic video how-to's on MOTOROLA'S website & YOU-TUBE).
However,through trial & error,I've found these steps work in getting past the screen saver mode of the ever-floating MOTOROLA symbol.
I followed all your recs, including restoring to stock. Now I have the webtop on the dock, but the trackpad doesn't work. I can see the cursor on the screen, but I can't move it. I can plug a USB mouse in and the cursor works fine. Anyone else run into this?
