I have an early 2009 macbook running OSX 10.8.  If I close the lid or manually select sleep/shutdown it works fine, BUT whenever I plug in my iphone to sync or charge, the macbook does not respond to a sleep/shutdown command (whether manual or by closing the lid).  I cannot be the only person this is happening to.

Is there a fix for this? 

iPhone 4S, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)
