I'm having huge problems charging ipods and a blackberry via usb on my windows 7 (desktop) machine. I will add that this is the same hardware that 2 weeks ago had windows xp and the usb charging worked fine on all devices from all ports--front and rear.
I go to device manager and uncheck the box "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" on all usb-hub entries, and while the checkbox becomes "unchecked", there is no change in charging ability but more curiously--when I restart the computer this box is checked again for all hubs.
How can I force this box to stay unchecked. This is *not* a laptop. I don't care if there's power at the device at all times. It doesn't drain power when nothings connected so I don't see the issue here.
