usb issues - ports still powered during hibernate

Product Name: probook 645 G2
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

My notebook USB ports remain powered up when I put the computer into hibernate...

 

I often keep my laptop connected to peripheral devices and it's a PITA to have to disconnect all those usb devices after hibernating the computer...and then reconnect them all when I need the computer again... (in my audio recording studio)...

 

Is there any way to tell the computer to POWER DOWN ALL USB devices when the computer is put into hibernate mode?

PS: I AM NOT a "student"! 

 

I have over 50 years of experience building, consulting and programming computers, including (alas) well over 20 years of experience with Windoze...

 

I don't know why that's under my screen name nor where to change that...

Re: usb issues - ports still powered during hibernate

Check in the BIOS for a setting such as this

 

USB Charging Port Function                                                        Disable,*Enable 

 

Disable the setting if you don't want charging
