There is a woefully inadequate and antiquated amount of information about this utility both on the MSI website, as well as in the manual.

As one who has not owned an apple device since the first gen shuffle, I was not aware of this being an iOS specific utility.

I find this supremely puzzling. My assumption being that MOST people who utilize this motherboard will be running windows or linux. Why is there no support for such functionality for windows or android devices??
After looking for a red jusb spot on the motherboard and finding none, watching MSI videos on it from 2013, as well as searching this forum, I have resigned myself to defeat.

For all previous computers I have owned, I simply leave them on. Recently I have taken to leaving my phone connected to the computer to charge. I was informed about power management options to allow charging while the computer is sleeping. This has proved to be inadequate.

While it is not a deal breaker that I cannot charge my phone while the computer is sleeping, and perhaps my Note 8 cannot harness the power of the Super Charger utility, I am still curious as to whether this is intended or if there is a way to get my phone to charge faster than my toenails grow?

Do you mean Note 8 can't be charged under sleep mode on the model?
With Samsung A8 on B550 Tomahawk, still can be charged under sleep mode.

Sorry. The phone specifically is a Galaxy Note 8. While it is 'technically' charging, as an example; two nights ago I tried to charge the phone while the computer was in sleep mode. After approximately 10 hours of charging, it went from 43% to 58%.
