  1. Disable USB Power

    When I turn off my Windows 10 machine, USB devices remain powered on. I would like them to power off.

    I have already:

    1. Disabled USB selective suspend
    2. Disabled Fast Start
    3. Disabled "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" on the Power Management of the USB Root Hub Properties, as well as on the Generic USB Hub Properties and the Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller.

    How is this resolved? Any help is appreciated.

    OS Name: Microsoft Windows 10 Home

    Version: 10.0.19041 Build 19041

    Disable "Power Surge on USB" message

    Hi David,

    If the system detects that a USB port is going over the power limit, the system is set to notify the user by default. However, since you mentioned that you're still getting the notification after you disabled the alerts, we suggest following these steps

    • Right-click the Start button.
    • Choose Device Manager.
    • Click the drop-down arrow beside Universal Serial Bus controllers.
    • Right-click anything that has USB Host Controller in its name, and select
    • Go to the Driver tab and select Uninstall.
    • Restart your computer. The driver will be reinstalled automatically.

    Let us know if the error notification disappears after following these steps.
