Hi:

(I apologize if I am being redundant or misunderstood something)

The computer must be powered and the main memory mounted, if you unmount/safe remove, the device doesn't charge. Of course if the computer is suspended the device doesn't charge. At least with my prs700. My Imate charges from usb and doesn't need to be syncing and the computer can be in suspension mode. I think that it is something related with charging optimization, but Im not sure. Never tried an AC adapter. I have an AC/usb charger and a adaptor to a round tip (from an external HD), but never tried it.

Regards.
