Problem with system crashes on power loss

Some units can completely lock up your system when you lose power. This issue seems to be caused by the legacy ports (parallel and serial) on the dock. You can work around this by disabling the legacy ports in the BIOS: Config -> Docking Station -> Legacy Devices on Mini-Dock

Note: This wont help if you put your system into standby. After resuming your system will be affected again (tested with ubuntu 10.10).
