Trackclip pro never turning off

Post by Vernum » Mon Aug 13, 2012 7:18 pm

Hello, I have just bought track ir 5 with a trackclip pro and when I shut down my computer (not hibernation) the trackclip remains powered on, so we can see the 3 tiny red dot from it when everything is off.
Is there anyway to shut that thing off when the computer is actually down ?
I just hate having stuff slowly burning down when I m not using them.

Hello -

The LEDs have a duty cycle of around 10+ years, so wear on those isn't too much of an issue. If you're concerned about overuse or power use, however, the lights will go out when unplugged if your computer doesn't power down USB ports when it's off.
