Yes, for me the problem intermittent also. It does not happen all the time. I am going to try to use the regular charger for a couple of days. That may indicate whether the problem is with the charge dock or the TP. I don’t think it is a matter of placement. Sometimes. After placing it on the dock, it will start charging normally and only after a while will it start beeping, displaying the “charging” message, and vibrating. It is rather annoying.
