Charge iPhone While Mac is Sleeping
Authored by: network23 on Oct 01, '07 11:36:23AM

I think kirkmc was asking was not a confirmation of the hint issue, but rather could you just plug your USB cable into an external powered USB hub and it would still be charged when the Mac was asleep. If so, your iPhone would still sync and interact with the Mac as if it was plugged in directly, and also charge when asleep without having to buy an additional cable.

I'm at work so I can't test this out right now.

Charge iPhone While Mac is Sleeping

I originally tried plugging the iPhone USB cable into a powered USB hub, and it looks like the hub stops supplying power when the computer it's connected to shuts down or sleeps. Apparently you can modify a USB hub to supply power even when the computer is off or sleeping though.
