    After using a few motheboards, both Asus/Intel/Gigabyte I assumed all the recent motherboards supports USB standby power, but unfortunately the Asus Borad I have "P5LD2-VM" does not, this is a right pain in the arse becasue I can only charge my phone when the computer is off, with my previous motherboard it suppoted USB standby power..., and no this motherboard does not have any jumpers to enable it..., anyway I will be buying a new Intel board soon, "BOXD945GPMLKR" and was wondering how do you tell if it supports USB standby power, as I actually cannot get hold of it yet, and I don't think Intel have PDF manuals for it on their site...

    It surprises me that any recent motherboards don't do this. Since most new multimedia keyboards are USB, and have power buttons on them, a permanently-powered USB port would seem to be a necessity.

    I assume that there aren't any bios options for wake on USB, or to enable USB keyboards?
