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.
Change the settings while the USB device is disconnected from the USB port that supports USB charging.
- Start VAIO Control Center and select Hardware. (See Searching/Starting Apps, Settings, or Files to start VAIO Control Center.)
- Enable the USB Charging setting.
- Connect a USB device to the USB port with themark 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.
The USB charging settings are disabled by default.
