Catalyst 3560-E plug in to PC or other switches?

Hi, Kind of silly question as I'm newbie in Cisco.Can I plug in PC or any switches into 3560-E POE port as I hope it will not fried my LAN port. Cause I'm not using all the port for generating power to my IP phone or Wlan devices.

Hi

POE switches such as 3560-E based on IEEE 802.3af, contains a detection mechanism to send power only to POE compliant devices. eg:IP phones etc

So it's safe to connect other switches or PC to free ports.
