Continual use of USB Ports in computer monitors

Question asked by dankertj on Sep 17, 2019

USB fans plugged into USB ports located in computer monitors - I think if the fan power matches the USB port power we are OK (500mA), but not sure.

 

Second piece is if the monitor goes to sleep, does power to the USB fan get cut off? This is an office setting and concerned that while employees are away (after their shift), a plugged in fan could have a malfunction and somehow power would still be to the fan and cause a fire.

 

Any help, clarification is appreciated!
