Well this is ironic as the first post from my iPhone.
The phone was plugged into my Kensington powered hub when I unplugged the hub from the laptop last night. This am I went to get the phone and it was at 10% battery!
I am not sure but I recall iPods dying when plugged into a slept machine. Maybe something silmilar is happening?
Anyway i am in safari posting this because Verizon is reprovisioning my fios to dhcp.
