Laptop Latitude e6400 Stays ON after ejected from Docking Station

T0DD asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Even though the laptop is on and running, once you hit "eject" on the docking station, it's supposed to go to sleep.  What's happening though, unbeknown to the user is that it's still running and when they take it out of their bag, it's extremely hot with the fans blaring at full blast.    

I have Prosupport on it but Dell declined to help me and transferred me to software support, telling me that I'd have to pay the $129 incident charge.  Would love to know if someone knows what would be causing this.
