Default USB Sleep and Charge? - 09-21-2010, 05:22 AM

I have a Mini 9 running OSX 10.6 beautifully but there is one thing I wish it could do, I want to be able to sleep my Mini 9 while charging a USB device. I can do this with my Windows machine (HP tx1000), and I have done it with my Aluminum Unibody MacBook as well.

Is this a limitation of the Mini 9's hardware? Am I doing something wrong?

It's a limitation of the hardware and is very common. Only very recently have notebooks and netbooks been redesigned to enable USB charging when the system is shut down.
