Off-Topic: use laptop only as USB power supply

My last Lenovo laptop had a setting in the BIOS for exactly that.  Worked
great for hotel rooms (which notoriously have very few power plugs) when I
wanted to charge my cell phone and other devices over night.  No clue
about other vendors.

Hope that helps,
Adam

Hi there,
I'm not sure if anyone out there has an answer to this insane question:
But is it possible to use my laptop only has power supply via usb for my
mobile phone. Yes you heard right: I don't want to boot an operating
system I only want to charge my battery of my mobile phone. No fan should
be powered on. I only need voltage on the USB ports.

Any suggestions? ;)

best regards,
FliTTi
