Turning off Gigabyte's "On/Off Charge2" ?

I have a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H motherboard and I'd like to turn off the charge feature for a USB port.

Is this possible?

  1. I'm curious to why? The device needs power anyways, or is this a Ipod or something?

    It is an internal card reader. This does not need power when the computer is off plus it lights up when everything else is off.
  3. so when the computer is off, it is still lighting up?

    why is connected through a USB if it is internal?
  4. You should be able to just uninstall the program.
  5. you know what you can do, if nothing has worked for you, just flick the switch at the back of the case that is near the PSU, that'll cut the power altogether.

    Yes, the LED on the reader is always on unless I turn off the main switch on the power supply.

    Internal Card Readers use a USB header on the motherboard.

    Try this:

    Start > Control Panel > Power Options (if not visible change view to Large Icons at top right) > Change Plan Settings (for whatever plan you want) > Change Advanced Power Settings > Change settings that are currently unavailable > Set USB selective suspend setting to Disabled under USB settings and then click OK to save the changes.
    You may have to reboot.

    Or this:
    Make sure "wake by USB".... or something like that, is set to disable in BIOS.
    I can't download your MB manual right now to see where it is.
  8. I'll give that a try. Thank you...
