Need a better tech mind please
New HP machine, Win 10 64bit, UEFI "BIOS"
I have screens set to shut off at 10 minutes, HDDs set to shut off at 20 minutes, computer sleeps at 30 minutes. The rest of the power plan is/was the default Win 10 plan.
None of my USB ports stay powered when the machine 'sleeps' including the port on the top with the lightning bolt symbol, which I thought was specifically designed to not shut down.
Here's what I've tried, in approximately the order tried:
Changed power plan setting for "USB Selected Suspend Setting" to disabled.
In Device Manager, unchecked the setting for USB Root Hub>Power Management "Allow the computer to turn off this device..." There is just the one.
Did the same for the USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller - 1.0
Went into the UEFI and set the SATA power management to disabled.
I would prefer to let the computer go to sleep at 30 minutes and still be able to charge peripheral equipment (phones, etc). I do realize that I could set the computer to never sleep, but...
Any other ideas?
Thanks for your time
