Disabling TMM worked for me too, thanks a million!
But when TMM was off, it wouldn't detect if I had one plugged in when I
logged in or came out of sleep, which was helpful. So I came up with a few
modified settings of the TMM task. Basically, it tells TMM to run at log-on
and when coming out of sleep, but to turn off after a minute so it won't be
active during lock or unlocks. I still have to rearange every morning though.
Here it is.
