levano thinkpad essential port replicator - easyeject not working

I purchased the Levano thinkpad essential port replicator and cannot figure out how to eject my laptop from the docking station w/out shutting it down prior. I have been looking online and following the steps below, but when I click Fn+F9 I only see the option to eject my DVD docking station item is grayed out. Does anyone have any advice?????


My EasyEject Action dialog box when I select Fn+F9 per instructions:







Detaching the Essential Port Replicator

To detach your system from the ThinkPad Essential Port Replicator, do the following:


  • If your system is operating, make sure that it has finished operations involving devices that are connected to the USB connector, the serial connector, or the parallel connector. Also make sure that any connection to a modem or an Ethernet is stopped.
  • Make sure that the battery pack is fully charged.
  1. Press Fn+F9. The ThinkPad EasyEject Utility screen opens.
  2. Click the Eject ThinkPad PC from Mini Dock (Port Replicator) button. All ejectable devices connected to the ThinkPad Essential Port Replicator are stopped.
  3. Press the eject button (1) on the ThinkPad Essential Port Replicator until the system lifts up; then, grasping both sides, remove the system (2).
