    I'm currently using the Display Dock with my Lumia 950. I just plugged a USB fan to the Display Dock. However, it is not stopping when I unplug my phone. I see the red light on the dock, saying the dock is turned off, but the USB fan is still working. If I use the fan with my laptop or PC, the fan is turning off as it should, but not with the Display Dock.

    Any idea to stop the fan ?

    Yeah, unplug the fan or the dock. The hub is powered, right.. So it's got juice in through it. The red light means it's on standby waiting for the phone to connect then it turns red. In the meantime, it's acting as a charging block. So do what you got to do.

    The fan turns off when you're on PC or laptop, because you're shutting them down. No more juice flowing to the ports.

    Have a good one.

    Well, I have put a switch between the USB port and the fan. I'm now manually controlling the fan. Way better than unplugging each time I don't use the dock

    My laptop and the dock I connect it to on my desk both continue putting out power through the USB ports for reference.

    For a device that's constantly powered, that's behavior that isn't out-of-the-ordinary. Glad you found a workaround though at least.
