If you save/close Scrivener then check DropBox to be sure it is up to date then close your laptop, the lock file is not immediately removed. This causes Scrivener to think the files are open on your original device.
In order to make sure, I close Scrivener, then wait for a couple of minutes before closing my laptop lid. A lot of times, after DropBox says up to date, a little bit later you'll see another message that the lock file is changed, then you can close the lid.
I use both a Mac and a Windows 10 laptop and don't remember if I see the same thing on both but recommend that you watch for it if you're getting errors that the Scrivener project is open on another device.
