  1. Some mainboards keep supplying +5V to the usb ports even when shut off. This is normal.
  2. after googling around and looking to configure the gigabyte on/off technology and not finding anything . . simple solution: just turn off the power at the PSU. (the switch where the power cord is at in the back)
  3. If you are running Windows 7 the USB ports can be powered down using Selective Suspend.
    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.

    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.
  6. Is it call "PME Event Wake Up"?
  7. That is for power management - LAN. Not quite sure at this point; you have nothing to lose by disabling it.
  8. Nope it's not working >_<
  9. Gigabyte is EVIL!

    EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE-VVVIIIIILLLLLLLLLL!

    can you uninstall that power/charge on stuff?
  10. What do you mean? :S
  11. its on your motherboard
    GA-P55M-UD2 (rev. 1.1)

    "On/Off Charge Technology
    GIGABYTE On/Off Charge technology allows you to charge your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch regardless of whether your PC is on, in standby mode or even off."

    KILL IT!
  12. A good point looniam has made; If you simply installed everything on the driver disc automatically then on\off charge is probably running. It can be uninstalled from Control Panel / Programs.
  13. But I didn't installed that..

    ok then MAYBE your motherboard keeps the power on by default.

    as i posted before, you can reach behind the computer and turn off the PSU at the switch. but i really doubt it is hurting anything with the power on, its only 5 volts.
  15. Took me ages to figure this out. I have a gigabyte g1 assassin. I returned a lot of headsets because of this issue. All you have to do is go into the motherboard bios and under power management find ErP settings. Enable that. Basically it shuts off usbcharge.
  16. It is fine to turn off Erp but then you disable any Wake on lan capacity. so cant turn on computer from another computer in lan.. if data is stored on one computer drive i can turn the computer off until i need access to that drive and wake it from my other wired (or some wifi) computers /laptops. but with ErP disabled, I can not use the wake on lan. but, the drive i have data stored on is on the sata/usb port i cant get to turn off on this board (890FXA UD5) due to the charge app when off app. so my esata drive is on all the time.
    there are other things to do, but i have the catch 22 type issue with this.

    I just want to supply the answer for the ASUS M4A89GTD Pro users out there.

    1. There is no jumper on the Mobo to do this.
    2. There IS a BIOS setting
    3. ASUS couched the solution in riddle.

    1. Power up or restart the PC and repeatedly press the DELete key to go into the BIOS settings.
    2. Use right arrow key to move to the POWER tab
    3. Arrow down to the menu item "APM Configuration"
    4. Look for "EUP Ready" and "enable" it.
    5. Save and EXIT.

    "EUP" stands for "Energy Using Products" and apparently when English is your 2nd language, you think that "enabling" the readiness of Energy Using Products is how to shut them off. #FacePalm

    Anyhow, by "enabling" which actually disables, you'll no longer have power going to the USB ports when the computer is shutdown, You will also lose the ability to trigger power-up or wake states by pressing keys on your keyboard or from the phone ringing to your modem or mouse movement or any sort of peripheral activity, near as I can tell.

    If your motherboard has a CMOS battery, that can drain it pretty fast.
  20. If be enough one or two USB power off in shutdown mode PC, this my solution: http://www.goverlay.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=157&p=1019#p1019
  21. With reference to: fwupow's Post - Gigabyte have the ErP Bios Option under Power Management.

    Once ErP Option is Enabled - Power on USB Ports will be Turned-OFF.
