AH I have confirmation of this. I pulled the AA adapter out of the console so you could see it through the windows. After a while, the USB ports DO POWER OFF. Once I open the door, (no FOB or key present) the USB ports power back up. Saweeeet.I guess the USB ports could power up when the doors are opened and the overhead lights come on.. I doubt this to be true.. but I should be able to test that too.
