if it goes to orange led. That mean it did not detect a computer that is ON
so it went to sleep mode

if using desktop, make sure to connect to the USB port at the back of the computer

As already stated in the initial comment, I tried it on 2 different computers. I use laptop computers.
I must stress this, the drive read go to sleep with 2 seconds. No matter there is HDDs in the slots or not.

Normally, the computer need at least 10 seconds to setup the connection protocol and driver with the peripheral devices. In this case, the docking station goes to sleep before anything can happen.

Try a USB 2.0 port and see if it does the same thing. Or use a USB 2.0 cable (say from a USB printer, yes it will fit the back of the dock)
if you have USB powered HUB. Try connecting the dock to the hub.
