USB 3.0 Docking Station flickering off and on at random times

Why does my plugable USB 3.0 docking station keep flickering on and off at random times? The green USB light goes off and then comes back on. I have a Dell XPS 14z running Windows 7 professional. The USB is connected through a SS USB port.
