Re: USB Sleep condition

Hi again jon and the group...........

I have just been to the shack and written down the steps needed to keep
power to the USB ports.

So, here are the steps:
Click on Start
then Control Panel
Click "Hardware & Sounds"
then Power Options
then "Change power-saving settings"

Use HIGH PERFORMANCE, and click on CHANGE PLAN SETTINGS
Turn off display - NEVER!
Put computer to sleep - NEVER!
Then click on "Change advanced power settings"

In the tree, look for USB settings, and click on the + sign
It opens USB Selective suspend settings, click the + again
That opens to show SETTING, click on the (blue writing) ENABLED and change
it to DISABLED

That will keep power to your USB ports all the time, and saves a lot of
grief!

Hope that helps!
