Specs: Windows 7
My USB ports are not powered when the computer is off. I want them to remain powered when the computer is off so as to be able to charge my cell phone.

Is it s PC or laptop?

Are they USB 1.0, 2.0 or 3.0?

Depending on the machine, that may not be possible without some serious hardware modification. Some (especially older) machines remove power to everything when they are powered off.
