How to tell how often a laptop is undocked RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have quite a few laptops/docks that are in the process of being replaced, many of which are covered in dust and paperwork. We ask them and their supervisors if they can replace their machine with a desktop instead, and of course the response is always, "No, they need laptops..." 
    This time we are replacing them with laptops as requested, but it would be nice to have some info on if/when these user's actually undock their laptops. I understand it's just a port replicator, but at least in our situation, the docks are hooked up with 2 monitors, so if there was a way to monitor the keyboard/mouse or external monitors being "connected/disconnected" I think that's a starting point.<o:p></o:p>

    Any ideas on how this could be achieved? If there is something like this in the event log, what is it, and how could I save that to a file?<o:p></o:p>
