if by "off" you really mean "off", then i doubt the USB ports will
have power when the laptop is off.  if by "off" you mean "in suspend",
then i'm sure we'll be considering it.  we were hoping to have USB
powered during suspend on 1.5, but were foiled by poor documentation
of the gpio pins in question.
