That does not seem to be the case for this hub.  The way I found this 
out was that I had another one of the hubs on a different machine and 
when I plugged it up I noticed that all the lights on the ports lit up 
but with it unplugged they were dark.

I'll check what happens when I plug a functional unit in when the hub is 
  unplugged and see what state the ports are in.
