Default Does the s50 charge in the car dock while playing?

Yesterday for the first time, I played my s50 all day in portable mode until the battery ran out and it shut down. Last night I had my s50 in the car dock from home, and had the unit on overnight so I could record new music to one of My Channels. I was dismayed when after listening in portable mode again for 30 minutes today, the battery said low and shut down. Do I need to charge the unit outside of the car dock in order to charge it up again? I wouldn't think that would be neccessary. Anyone have any similar issues? I've had no other problems with my s50 in 3+ weeks.

Make sure the blue lights on the dock are lit. If the dock has power it will charge the unit.

something must be wrong then, because the dock had lights on (it was playing live music) all night and this morning my unit was not charged at all. Hopefully its just a one time problem, will try and see what's going on tonight.

I just assumed when I said before that the lights were on on my dock, since it was getting live radio, but from these old posts it looks like it can get live radio without the lights on in the dock. I'll have to doublecheck tonight. Thanks for that old link.
