Having problems with your Dell Latitude D600 Notebook ?

I have a Dell Latitude D600 laptop whose USB port is being used to charge the battery in an iPod Shuffle music player. The laptop shuts down after about thirty minutes of inactivity, preventing the iPod from receiving a full charge lasting four hours. Is there a way to override this automatic shutdown so the laptop can be used to fully charge the iPod's battery?

Should sort it for you
You can use a powered USB hub to charge your iPod, MP3 player etc. without connecting to a laptop's computer USB port.
\015\012Just connect the mains adapter to the USB hub and then plug your iPod into the hub for as long as you need.
\015\012You can also use this hub for your computer/laptop when you need extra USB ports..
