    Is there a way to turn off the power output on the USB port when the system goes to sleep or when it is shutdown? I have a 2.5″ hard drive attached and it keeps running all the time. I would like it to spin down when not in use. Perhaps there is a BIOS setting for this?

    Thank you

    Hello Dean,

    There are timeout options, but they will affect tshooting procedure if you choose to restore or manually install another OS at a later time. Our recommendation would be to disconnect the USB drive when not using it.

      Cris,

      Where are the timeout options? I could reset them if necessary.

      Thank you

      Hello Dean,

      The timeout options are in the advanced tab. Please be careful with what is changed here as you could potentially unintentionally brick your device.
