    Make USB port powered while suspend/sleep/standby

    How to use power from USB port while it goes to standby/suspend mode. When I go to device manager- USB root hub- right click - properties -power management tab, the option "allow this device to wake computer" is inactive. But "allow this computer to turn off this device to save power" is active and unticked.

    USB - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Sleep-and-charge USB ports can be used to charge electronic devices even when the computer is switched off. Normally, when a computer is powered off the USB ports are powered down, preventing phones and other devices from charging. Sleep-and-charge USB ports remain powered even when the computer is off
