I unplugged the dongle from the computer then plugged it back in the smart dock, and everything worked. So that may work for you. But if it doesn't, then I would replace the keyboard and or the dock.

Also for anyone wondering how to get the screen to turn off while its plugged into the dock. I use an app called Screen Standby. And if I remember correctly. It should work both unrooted and rooted. I also use Rotation Locker to manually change the screen orientation to landscape. These two combinations have worked great for me whenever I use my dock.
I'll try that tonight. I use the same 2 apps

I'm running stock, perhaps it's due to your custom rom

My K400 + Note 2 Smart Dock stopped working nicely together after a week or two with the dock. They worked beautifully together originally, but then I made the mistake of using the K400 with a windows laptop. I'm thinking that somehow, the keyboard still thinks it should be paired with a windows device and isn't connecting well to the phone via the dock somehow. I'm not sure why this is happening or how to fix it.

Sounds like another member (laztpn0i) had the same issue. I can successfully connect the K400 to both windows laptops I own (one on Win7 home premium, the other on XP professional). There is no required / proprietary software to install in order for the keyboard to work. In the device manager, the keyboard just shows up as "HID Keyboard Device" under "Keyboards".

How do I break the link between my windows computers and this K400 so I can use it again with the smart dock for my note 2? Sounds like something you had to do as well, laztpn0i, so any help / advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much,
Phil

Download the unifying software from Logitech and 'pair' the device and the adapter (you can't have it paired to 2 adapters at the same time like bluetooth)

Default Seems to work fine for me.

Just adding to the data pile. Seems to work out-of-the-box for most things. Trying to figure out the buttons now, but typing, mouse etc. working well.
