computer while it is in the sleep mode; instead, leaving the USB cable
connected, first return your computer to its normal mode. If you remove the
USB cable while your computer is in the sleep mode, your computer may
not be able to return to its normal mode. For details on your computer's
sleep mode, refer to the documentation provided with your computer.
