USB power in sleep mode

I have a hp 2840 running vista ultimate 64. the 5v usb power remains available for charging accessories even in sleep mode. I just purchased a new hp with windows 7 home premium and the usb ports go completely dead in sleep mode. Is there anyway to keep the usb 5v power on during sleep mode

This is often a setting in the system's BIOS. Have you checked there for any settings related to power? This may require a phone call to HP for assistance.
