warm, too warm. I bought a couple of external fans that plug directly
into USB for power and they cool my computer like a treat. When I put
the system into standby (S3) I was surprised to find the fans still
happily running. Hmm.
I looked in power options, nothing.
I tried turning off all devices ability to wake from standby (USB
keyboard and mouse) didn't help.
I looked in the BIOS, nothing apparent there.
Can anyone give me any ideas of how to make the fans come on and off as
the computer goes into and out of standby. I think that basically means
somehow turning the USB power on and off.
Anyone got any ideas?
Re: Can I suspend USB power when I go into standby?
In device manager USB Controllers,USB root hub, Power management,
there is a setting that might do what you want it to do. Click on the
"?" and drag it onto the line where you can shut it off, and it will
give you an explanation.
