USB ports as power source

I know that the usb ports can be used to power some devices while the console is on. My question is, will they supply power while the console is off as well? I have an external usb fan that I would like to use, but I would like for it to only come on when the console comes on. Can anyone tell me if this is possible?

Thank you!

@SteelPredator25 From the way you wrote that post your saying that the Plug & Charge kit and Wireless headset will provide power which they don't. What I think you meant though was that the console only supplies power while off to those devices which is wrong, the USB ports either provide power or they don't, it doesn't matter what device is plugged in. I hope this clears that up for you.

They will not supply power wjen your console is OFF. The only devices that i know of that will supply power when its off is the Play and Charge Kit and the wireless head sets such as the 360 bluetooth

Yes, the USB port do stay on to power as most people who play on the Xbox will charge their accessories after using the console such as the Wireless Microphone or battery pack. I personally charge my phone, wireless microphone and headset off the console with no issues.
