Can anyone help me to do something like this in UNRAID please?

or failing that, how is this done in linux?

I want to remove power to a USB port that I have a cell phone connected to, every time the computer goes to sleep (s3 sleep mode)

 

 

I don't want the cell phone battery to explode, because I have the cell phone connected all the time

If you have electronics knowledge and can solder, this is pretty easy. Take the + 5V (not the + 5VSB) line (from the PSU or a HDD/SSD) and solder a USB socket - done. Every time the computer is switched off or goes into sleep, the power supply to the socket is interrupted - it's that easy. 😉

 

Much easier:

Take a Molex-Extender and cut the +12V-line (Yellow). Keep the +5V (Red) and on the other end of the cable, solder the USB socket (from an old cable).

If you can't do the work, just buy a Molex-to-USB Adapter 👍
