    How to Turn On or Off USB Selective Suspend in Windows 10


    The USB selective suspend feature allows the hub driver to suspend an individual port without affecting the operation of the other ports on the hub. Selective suspension of USB devices is especially useful in portable computers, since it helps conserve battery power. Many devices, such as fingerprint readers and other kinds of biometric scanners, only require power intermittently. Suspending such devices, when the device is not in use, reduces overall power consumption.

    For more information about USB selective suspend, see:
    This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off USB selective suspend for your power plan in Windows 10.

    Windows 10, unable to disable USB selective suspend

    Upon upgrading to Windows 10, I have noticed that my external USB device powers off after a few minutes of inactivity.

    I have researched this, and already changed the following setting:

    For all 4 power plans listed on my computer, I have gone to "USB settings", and selected "disable" for "USB selective suspend setting" for both "on Battery" and "Plugged in" for all 4 power plans.

    Device manager: "USB Serial Bus Controllers", I have made sure all USB items that have a "Power Management" tab are unchecked for "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".

    The issue continues, the USB device still turns off after a few minutes of inactivity. This happens on 2 separate Windows 10 machines, and never happened on the same machine running Windows 7, before the upgrade to Windows 10.

    Are there any other settings that I need to change to disable the USB selective suspend in Windows 10?

    Is there a registry setting where I can simply change the timeout period to some other timeout value, i.e. 60 minutes?

    Unable to disable USB Selective Suspend


    Hi there- kind of an unusual problem. I'm having issues with a 3rd party Microsoft wireless controller receiver shutting off in game. One option I haven't explored yet is USB selective suspend messing with its power. Unfortunately, when I go to change the advanced power settings of my power plan on the Surface Book, there's no USB power settings at all. You can see it for yourself in the screenshot here:

    Any ideas how to access this setting and turn off USB selective suspend, or another way to turn it off without going into power plan settings?
