USB Port Power

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, recently upgraded my PC, my old ASUS mobo kept the external USB ports alive on the front of my ATX tower, this was especially useful as I use a mobile broadband dongle (remote Australia no bb available),  and my PC has no wifi capability.   So my pc could go online via USB, but also the dongle would stay alive for all my other needs when the PC was off.


My upgrade was to an MSI Gaming 5 mobo.  Now the usb ports are no longer powered when PC is shut down, I cant find a setting to change this so far.   One strange thing I did notice though, is that when I was setting up my overclock and got a bsod, if I forced the PC off by holding in the power button then the usb ports stayed alive. 


Any help appreciated, thanks, Kieron
