Charge iPhone While Mac is Sleeping
Authored by: Dunkin on Oct 02, '07 10:46:05AM

I recently bought a Targus 7 port USB powered hub that has 2 ports that stay powered regardless of computer condition (On, Sleep, Off) and can be used to charge or run any USB device.

Check the USB hub for this feature. It is exceptional not standard for most USB hubs.

Please, not again.

Charge iPhone While Mac is Sleeping

The Targus hub with the "always on" ports do not charge an iPhone by itself.

I have an older PowerBook G4 1GHZ that turns off power to the USB ports when sleeping and wanted to charge my iPhone at night, but found out even though the Targus hub has ports that continuously supply power, the iPhone won't charge. Either the power level isn't high enough or the iPhone is expecting something "intelligent" on the opposite end of the dock connector.
