USB Powershare wasting battery


Jul 14, 2015
If I have USB powershare on on my Dell XPS 13 2015, does it waste my battery if I have nothing plugged in? In other words, if I put my computer to sleep, does the battery drain because the USB is always on, even if nothing is plugged in? Thanks for any response!
