As many others have complained, I too find it problematic to work with a dongle. I will not repeat the argument, but instead suggest a new way for this to work:
I vision a system where the files produced are locked in some way when the dongle is missing without blocking for the creative process of writing and editing. Practical I suggest that the Print mode and the producing mp3 files are blocked when the dongle isn’t attached.
The best would of course, be to get rid of the dongle. I never understood why we the paying customers must suffer because other non-paying customers might misuse a product.
