Select Toshiba laptops offer up to four convenient USB Sleep and Charge ports and the Toshiba Sleep Utility for charging of USB devices such as a tablet, cell phone, camera, or personal media player while the computer is in sleep mode or even shut down. The computer does not have to be connected to power to charge devices.
The following video explains setting up Sleep and Charge:
Verify the device to be charged can do so through its power cable using a USB port. Each USB device will have its own specific charging specification. To charge your device in Standby/Sleep Mode, Hibernation Mode, or shutdown state, the suitable mode for your device has to be selected. Auto Mode (Default) is suitable for a wide range of digital audio players.
Note: If you are at the screen that appeared automatically when a device was connected to the Sleep and Charge port, select SETUP NOW to open the Sleep Utility and go to STEP 4.
If the device does not charge there are a few possible causes.
Sleep and Charge is useful, but not all devices are compatible with USB charging or the Sleep and Charge function.
(1) A USB cable is not supplied with your TOSHIBA computer. Please use the cable that was supplied with your USB device when needed.
(2) Some computers may not support all modes.
