    Can this be done once the console has been powered off - i.e. like the Xbox 360 allows you to do ?

    No, but you can plug the usb cable into your pc usb port and charge it that way if your pc is on.

    What a shame - the 360 really was good for little things like that.

    Thanx for the info though fella.

    When in remote play mode, my ps eye is on, maybe if you put it in remote play, that you switch on over psp, it may work

    First guy was wrong as it can be done, is you put the PS3 in remote wakeup mode for remote play it keeps the USB ports powered, turn that on and you get charging whilst sleeping however there is a slight whir from the fan much like the fan in the 360's power brick to keep the PSU cool.

    I did not know that, as he asked if it would work when powerd off i was assuming he was talking about if the ps3 was turned off completly.
