I have experienced the same issue. It appears that once you dock the tablet, the sound is routed to the docking station. The headphone port on the tablet will also not work when docked. I would recommend attaching speakers to the docking station since it has an audio port.

Lappdog is right that it routes to the docking stations audio port automatically. To change this just bring up the mixer control and select the audio destination you want. There are several ways to get to the mixer control in Windows. One of the easiest is to right-click on the speaker icon in the systray and choose "Open Volume Mixer." The volume mixer window has a dropdown box under the device speaker icon that offers the choices you have for where the audio is directed.
