Dell Latitude E6420 Stays Awake After Undocking

Is there a way to tell my laptop to automatically sleep after being undocked from its docking station?

Currently after undocking, it will stay awake unless I manually put the computer to sleep or hit the power button on the docking station.

If its possible I can't see it.  Try one of the following if it's not:

Windows + I should pop up with the sleep option.  Do this before you undock.  Or:

I presume you are on power when docked, so why not set your power options to not sleep at all on power, and then sleep after 5 minutes on battery.  Almost what you want :)

This is the best solution to the issue other than having to manually change the power settings when actually using the laptop on battery.
