What Is USB Power Saving?
USB power saving is a feature in Windows 10 that can help save power by disabling unused USB ports. This can be useful if you are running low on battery, or if you want to save energy overall. By disabling these ports, your device will run more efficiently and will use less power.
You can disable USB power saving for all devices or for specific devices. For example, you might want to disable the USB port on your keyboard so that it doesn’t drain your battery when you aren’t using it. Additionally, disabling USB power saving can help improve device performance. By reducing the number of times that the device has to start up, this can lead to improved performance and longer battery life.
To disable USB power saving for all devices, open the Settings app and select System. Under “Power & sleep,” select “USB settings.” Under “USB power saving,” uncheck the box next to “Enable USB power saving.” To disable USB power saving for specific devices, open the Settings app and select Devices. Under “Devices,” select the device you want to change the setting for. Under “Power & sleep,” select “USB settings.” Click on the downward arrow next to the option labeled “Enable USB power saving.” In the list of options, uncheck the box next to “Enable USB power savings” for the device you want to change the setting for.
How to Disable USB Power Saving in Windows
Windows 10 includes a feature called “USB selective suspend.” This feature can be used to save battery life on your computer, but it can also have some unintended consequences. In this section, we will explain how to disable USB power saving mode in Windows 10, and what effects it may have. We will also provide instructions on how to keep your computer from going into hibernation mode.
USB selective suspend is enabled by default in Windows 10. When it’s enabled, it will try to lower the power usage of certain devices when the computer is idle. This includes your USB devices, but also your network card and sound card.
There are two ways to disable USB power saving mode in Windows 10: you can use the “Power Options” utility or you can use a registry key. The Power Options utility is located under “System and Security” in the “Control Panel.” To enable or disable USB selective suspend using the Power Options utility, follow these steps:
This method works fine for most people, but there are some cases where it may not be enough. For example, if you have a very high-powered USB device, like a video camera or separate hard drive that needs more juice than USB selective suspend can give it, then disabling USB power saving mode will not work properly. In this case, you’ll need to use the registry key instead.
To disable USB power saving mode using the registry key, follow these steps:
Once you’ve disabled USB power saving mode using either method, make sure that your computer doesn’t go into hibernation mode anymore by following these steps:
If all of this still fails to solve your problem and your computer goes into hibernation mode every time you close down Windows 10- even after disabling USB power saving- then something deeper may be at play and we would strongly suggest calling an expert for help diagnosing and fixing whatever issue is causing this problem.

Tips for Optimizing Your USB Settings
USB drives are a great way to store your files and data, but they can also be a source of problems. By optimizing your USB settings in Windows 10, you can help to prevent these problems from happening. The benefits of optimizing your USB settings are clear—you’ll save time and hassle, and your computer will run more smoothly. However, if you don’t optimize your USB settings, there’s a chance that damage could be done to your computer. So it’s important to know what the risks are, and how to minimize them.
Before you start optimizing your USB settings, it’s important to know what they are. There are four main types of USB drives—storage devices (like hard drives and flash drives), keyboards, mice, and other input devices. Each type has its own specific set of optimizations that you should make in Windows 10.
Here are the four main types of USB drives, and the specific optimizations that you need to make for each:
Storage devices: You don’t need to do anything special for storage devices. Just plug them into your computer like any other drive, and Windows 10 will recognize them automatically.
Keyboards, mice, and other input devices: If you’re using a keyboard or mouse connected directly to your computer via a cable, then you don’t need to do anything special. However, if you’re using one of these peripherals with a USB hub or another device on your computer, then you’ll need to configure Windows 10 correctly. To do this, go to Settings > Devices > Keyboard & Mouse > Advanced tab > General settings. Here you’ll see two options—”Use as primary device” and “Enable additional features.” If both options are checked (as they should be), then Windows 10 will use the keyboard or mouse as the primary device—meaning that all other inputs will be redirected through it. If only “Enable additional features” is checked (which is usually the case), then other USB peripherals on your computer will still work but their buttons or sensors won’t receive any input from Windows 10—which can be useful if you want to use multiple keyboards or mice at the same time without them conflicting with each other. Finally, if none of these options is checked, then Windows 10 uses whichever peripheral was plugged in last. Mice usually require this setting be unchecked so that they work without having an external power supply; likewise for most joysticks.
Other input devices: This category includes things like digital audio players (such as MP3 players) and game controllers like Xbox 360 controllers. Most of these products come with their own power supply unit, so unchecking “Use as primary device” usually isn’t necessary; however, there may be some exceptions where an external power supply might be desirable (for example, if your controller relies on battery). In cases like this, just check the box below “Allow extra features when connecting over Wi-Fi.” This setting allows Windows 10 access to any available sensors within range of your wireless network adapter. Once again, check this box only if no external power supply is
