switching usb ports off when comp shuts down

  [DELETED] 21:56 23 Feb 2006

Is there a setting somewhere that will turn the power off the usb ports when the computer gets switched off ?.

PSU switch at the back of your PC, or at the wall?

ok ok........I meant on the settings in the comp itself......without having to get on my knees to pull the thing out to get to the switch.

when you turn your computer off by pressing the ON/OFF button on the front of your computer there will be no power to the USB port(s)

Not being sarcastic - the motherboard is always powered up if the PSU/wall switch is on, otherwise the momentary switch on the front won't turn the computer on.

Forgive me for asking,why would you want the usb ports switched off when you turn the system off ?

Sorry I am wrong, just tried it power still on

I have a skype usb phone adaptor plugged into a usb port with two red led's on to show power etc.....these stay lit when the comp is turned off as the usb is still supplying power although it won't actually work unless the comp is switched on.

I have just tried two other USP sockets and when I shut down the power is OFF.
