Hi, Michael.

Enable / Disable Power Saving on USB Ports


1. Press the Windows key + R to open the Run box. Type devmgmt.msc and press Enter.

2. When the Device Manager window opens, expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers branch, then right-click the USB Root Hub device and select Properties.

3. Click the Power Management tab. If you want USB ports to keep supplying power in sleep mode, just uncheck “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power“. Or check it to let Windows turn off USB ports to save power.

4. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for all of the USB Root Hubs on the computer.

hi all, this is michael. I'm cross posting this time. Do any of you know how to configure your computer to turn your external keyboard off while the computer is off? 

I'm asking question like this is because Ever Since I got a new computer in January I begin to experience this issue. My Braille display won't turn off on my new computer  when I put my  computer to sleep while the Braille display is on USB connection. My Braille display turn itself off on my old computer while it's on USB Connection  when I put my old machine to sleep. I want to know what settings in the new computer that I need to adjust?

Hope to hear from you.

Best regards 

Michael Munn
