Currently Being ModeratedJun 30, 2007 8:26 AM (in response to Lougoose)It does note in the online manual that leaving the phone in the docking station can drain battery when the computer is off or sleeping.
Would it be better to leave the phone in the dock with the computer asleep, not connected to anything, or in the wall outlet charger?iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.10)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 30, 2007 8:33 AM (in response to doctorely)Leaving the iPhone plugged into a USB adapter is probably the best bet. I'm assuming iPhones have the same technology as iPods in which there is a designated chip there to control charging and preventing the battery from being damaged if left in too long. Leaving your iPhone in a sleeping computer will drain the battery just as it would if it wasn't connected at all since there is no power going in.17-Inch iMac, Mac OS X (10.4.9)
