I have "Sleep when lid is closed" enabled. It works as expected most of the time.
However, I recently tried using a DisplayLink docking station. It seems to work well... except, when I close the lid, the system does not go to sleep. Instead, it just turns off the integrated display, but otherwise continues to run along on the other displays.
I can understand how either behavior may be desired depending on the circumstances, but I would expect "Sleep when lid is closed" to trump other behaviors. Is there a setting hidden somewhere else to make it really behave that way?
This is further a problem since I can't seem to find a way to manually enable sleep from the UI. I'm stuck unplugging the docking station before closing the lid.
