    Is it possible to eject a thunderbolt dock and all of its connected drives in one click? Or am I stuck ejecting each disc one at a time whenever I want to move my laptop from my desk?

    Thanks

    Many dock manufacturers provide just such a tool for their dock.

    Even if there isn't one, you can eject multiple volumes at once by just selecting all of them and choosing to eject.

    - I'm quite sure you could do that relatively easily with a script similar to those suggested in the thread I linked to.

    Though you shouldn't need to unmount volumes to get drives to sleep; they should be doing that anyway.

    Some do, some don't, unfortunately.

    I've a WD TBolt1 My Book Duo, and it annoyingly wakes up repeatedly while my MBP is asleep. :-/
