Toshiba has come up with a fix for a problem that many mobile users have probably come across at one point or another. I myself run into this when I want to charge my iPhone on my notebook while traveling, but don’t want to have the machine running all night.

Toshiba announced today that its new Satellite notebooks are equipped with a new Sleep-and-charge USB port that allow electronic devices to charge and get power from USB without the PC needing to be on.

"Toshiba has long been a leader of innovation, and prides itself on creating solutions that make the digital lifestyle even better," said Jeff Barney, vice president of marketing, Digital Products Division, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. "With the development of the Sleep-and-Charge USB ports, Toshiba has developed an innovative technology that helps ensure that our digital products are ready for use at the moment we need them."
