    so i usually have an external plugged in and i usually put my laptop (a hp dv5t) to sleep mode at night, but the external harddrive still stays on.

    how do i disable usb power in standby mode? i already went into advance power options and couldn't find anything. also, in power settings, USB selective suspend is enabled

    guess it's the 8 intel hubs but to know witch one is connected to your HD is a hassle google for a software that maps them for you!
