Today new PC (desktop, laptop) get a new feature : when PC is shutdown then USB connector stays power supplied according to charge USB devices. Nice but no so. USB keyboard, mouse, card reader, Bluetooth adapter or their drives must be smart enough to detect this state and to switch off by themselves. This is not the case.
I installed the Broadcom driver of my Bluetooth adapter supplied by Pluggable. This swithes off the led when shutdown but it remains an emitted very tiny light.
Then in my case I went to bios. I searched USB power settings. i found in “embedded devices settings” a setting “Charging USB devices in power state S5” with value “enable”. I change the value to “disable” then no more problem for my Bluetooth adapter and my card reader.
I ask as I was thinking of purchasing that model, but have read several reviews that mention having problems with the pins in the CF slot, effectively rendering it unusable. As it’s CF cards I would be using primarily, I’ve rather been dissuaded from making the purchase. I wonder if you’ve had any problems in that respect.
