Periodic external mouse/keyboard pause when laptop docked with lid closed

I am using Fedora 20 on a new Lenovo W540 laptop with external USB keyboad/mouse plugged into the Ultradock. When the laptop is docked and the lid is closed I get periodic mouse/keyboard pauses. These pauses happen roughly every five seconds and last less than a second. However, if the laptop lid is open the pauses don't happen.

Has anyone seen this type of behavior? Any suggestions for fixing it?
