VAIO User Guide SVZ1311 Series


Charging a USB Device

You can charge a USB device even while your VAIO computer is off, in Hibernate mode, or Sleep mode by enabling the USB charging settings.
The USB charging settings are disabled by default.
  1. Click (Start), All Programs, and VAIO Control Center.

  1. Click Power Management and USB Charging Settings to enable the settings.

  1. Connect a USB device to the USB port with the mark printed around it.

If charging does not start even when you connect a USB device to the USB port that supports USB charging, disconnect and connect the device.
  • With the USB charging settings enabled, power consumption when your VAIO computer is off or in Hibernate mode or Sleep mode increases because the computer supplies power to the USB port even when a USB device is not connected to the port.

  • When the USB charging settings are enabled, you cannot use the remote wake-up function on the USB device connected to the USB port that supports USB charging.
