turn on Vista USB power

    I want to recharge a cell phone on a USB cable, but the battery is flat.

    With the Linux drivers, the USB power would be hot, and the phone would just
    start juicing.

    How do I convince Vista to turn on the power - to _see_ if something is on its
    USB wire??

    In your device manager, you can look at the power settings for the USB
    Hub. I don't think Vista disables power by default.
