I have already tried to diable / enable usb selective suspend - did not work. I have also tried to enable / disable the setting in device manager the "allow computer to turn off this device to save power" setting - did not work. Also the option is not in the bios. So does anyone how to disable power to certain usb ports or even all of them? My old hp laptop did not have this feature / problem. When ever i put my computer in standby my chill pad stays on. I was it to turn off its really inconvenient having to plug / unplug it. I appreaciate any help. I have an Ideapad Y560P. Thanks

I guess a chill pad does not register as USB-Device, it just steals some power from USB port.
Adding a On/Off switch to the chill pad may be a solution?
my two cents... Zehn

Thanks again for another suggestion but I have alreaedy looked throught that and there is nothign for the usb control. I am almost positive that this setting should be in the bios but I don't see the option. So is there maybe a bios update with the option? Also does anyone know what kind of mother board the y560p has.

How about plugging it in to a different port. I think that there is just one port that always has power to it. I don't think they all are power always on ports.

my Y560p, i7-2630QM, AMD HD 6570M, RAM 8GB, Win7-64bit,
has mother board: KL3F MB CAP/1G WO/3G 31KL3MB00Q/R0
and BIOS: 3FCN17WW, changed from 3FCN19WW to fix a sound stutter issue.
If your BIOS is different version, what exactly do you like me to look up for you in my BIOS?
All my USB connected devices show in 'Devices and Printers'...
USB-HDD, USB-memory, USB-mobile internet, USB wireless mouse.
Does your cooling pad appear as USB-device in 'Devices and Printers'?

No it does not appear on the list because the chill pad does not install any drivers to the computer. It simply grabs power from the usb port and uses that power to run its fans. I was going to try to email the motherboard manufacturer to see if there was a way to fix this thanks for the information.

However I do have a unifying receiver and a usb headset that both show up in the device and printers list. But both of them installed drivers into the computer. But I think the chill pad doesnt show because it simply just grabs power off the usb port.
