    Hi guys and gals...

    Is there a way to stop the Droid X from charging when it's connected via usb?

    Here's the situation... I take a train to commute to work, it's about a 90 minute ride, and there's no AC power. I like to use my laptop during the commute to get some work done, and with my new droid I bought an app that tethers the internet connection, but only over USB.

    Problem is, when it's connected over USB, the laptop battery charges the phone, and the laptop dies after about 45-60 minutes. Without the phone connected, I can use it for my whole commute.

    So I really need to be able to disable the charging while still maintaining the data connection from the phone to the laptop.

    Thanks...
