It's supposed to kick it out after it automatically cleans the heads. Unfortunately I don't think you can put it into backup software to schedule it's cleaning.

The cleaning of the DDS3 tape takes not very long. The Cleaning tape was move a little bit and than the tape would be ejected.

Make sure that NOTHING is trying to use the tape drive or is waiting for a tape when you insert the cleaning tape.
