On my desktop, I had it set to turn on after a certain combination of keys were pressed and I think I saw something similar in the BIOS settings of the 9300 but when I turned it on to still put power through the USB ports when off, it didn't work. It seems like the 9300 doesn't put power through USB ports when off?
I don't think it supplies USB power when off or in hibernation, but it should while in standby
P.S. I wouldn't recommend always using it with the lid down, as that may impede the air circulation... especially while gaming
