charging from compatible usb 3.0 port in sleep mode


#1
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!
