  • Hi Muruga85,

    Did you mean when you lock and unlock the your laptop, then your SFB client can’t log in successfully, is that right?

    If this is your issue, please try the following method:

    1. Use another computer test if there is the same issue, and you could also try to test with another account on this laptop.
    2. Please perform a clean boot on your computer and test again.
    3. Try to delete SFB cache file and test again: %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Lync\sip_UserName@Domain.com
    4. Install the latest update for your SFB client and your windows system.

    If all users had this issue, please check if there are any event IDs in SFB FE server.

  • Hi Muruga,

    Please specify what do you exactly mean by "undocking" the laptop. As far as I know, SFB loses its connection and show "Connecting" only when suddenly network is unavailable e.g. network cable is unplugged.

    Please mark as helpful if you find my contribution useful or as an answer if it does answer your question. Thanks.

  • Hi, Docked means connected to wired network,

    Undocked means Laptop switched to Wi-Fi network


    Laptop docked Skype able to login

    Laptop undocked Skype automatically login after 15 to 30 seconds

    Again docked back skype unable to login , it remains disconnected until we click cancel sign in.

  • So when you dock again does the laptop close the wireless connection? You might then have 2 connections and the client does not know which connection to use if wifi is still connected...

  • When I dock again laptop switched wireless to wired so it is disconnecting and trying to login but no luck.

  • I have tried all methods but no luck.

    I configured manual settings and client login after one minute.

    Automatic configuration only having the issue.
