Default [Q] Docking station issues...

Was wondering if I'm the only one having issues with the tablet mode...I've only had this phone about 4 days.

When I insert the phone into the docking station, its dead. No vibration or light. When the power is plugged in, it does work but after a few seconds the screen times out, and I have to remove and re-insert the phone to get it to go again.

It being such a new phone and it seeming like such a good deal to me, I'm a little scared of it now. Still got 10 days to change my mind...lol


Anyone with those sort of issues?
Do I not understand something about how it works? Does the docking station battery need to charge independently or something?
I thought maybe playing with different launchers and Dynamic Display settings messed it up, so I did factory reset and same result.
