You can't. The usb ports on computers don't supply enough juice for the large battery in the tablet. However, I did some research and found this: http://www.pcworld.com/article/20249...ur-tablet.html

It's a dongle you can get to plug in your pc's usb port that supplies enough juice to power charge tablets. The article says it has been tested on an Ipad 3. So surely it shouldn't be a problem with an Android tablet.

You can very slowly, but only if the tab is sleeping, and it will only charge around 8% per hour. If the tab is on, the drain from the screen and cpu will most likely exceed the power of the computer's usb port, and it will slowly run down. At least that is my experience with my P5113.
