      check if your powersupply supports this

      OR

      get a simple 5v regulator and splice that one in between you usb-cable and some continuous 12v of the car...

        It may also be an option in your motherboard's BIOS.

          I use suspend to RAM mode. In addition to quicker startup and shutdown, it keeps the USB power on. At first I thought that was highly undesirable. That means I am always powering USB accessories. Then I realized my GPS (BU-353) keeps its fix when I am parked outside. The other devices wasting power while the PC is in standby are a Bluetooth dongle and the minikey keyboard. No big deal.

          So the STR mode is another option you or others may consider.

                The m1000 does not cut power to your usb ports, which is normal for a lot of motherboards.
