    charging from compatible usb 3.0 port in sleep mode

    for starters, this is a sony vaio e series laptop...

    I know, if I enable the option, when I do a normal shutdown I can charge, say my mp3 player from my usb 3.0 port.

    what I want to know is if I close the lid like I normally do at the end of my day, can I charge my device and not say..wake the computer from what is essentially a hybrid shutdown type sleep mode?

    You should be able to close the lid while still charging the mp3.

    I Do this on my desktop and laptop.

    I think it is just as long as windows can detect that a device is plugged in. Once plugged in you can put it to sleep without worrying that it'll stop charging.

    Hope this helps!

Question about sleep mode
Hey guys, I've recently started using sleep mode for my PC, no point leaving it on for many hours so I'd rather have it sleep. From what I understand, Sleep puts the PC in a low state power mode with settings and document saved in the memory. In my case, when I put my PC to sleep,...
