Wanting my KB and Mouse lighting to stay on after shutdown

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i lookef at a solution to this a while ago but never got a real answer. Basically i love having a red glow to my room, even at night.  And having got the corsair K30 raptor and the Logitech G502 spectrum for the purpose of matching that colour scheme, i would love to have my mouse and keyboard glow even when i am away from my system. 

 

The real info:

 

in the past my original G502 proteus core would glow after shutdown and in sleep mode, the k30 however would only activate the backlight momentarily after a keypress. I just want my new G502 spectrum and my K30 being supplied power all the time. Its that simple. My razer tiamat 7.1s LEDs glow when the system is off (however they use the rear USB ports while my mouse and keyboard can only be in the front ports for the time being)

 

any help is appreciated

Try going to BIOS and setting USB ports to always on if that's an option. Look in device manager as well.

Get a independently powered USB hub for cheap online and just plug them into that - I had the opposite problem with my mouse as it would stay on when I wanted it off.

e.g. https://www.amazon.co.uk/AmazonBasics-4-Port-USB-3-0-Plug/dp/B00E0NH7DQ/ref=sr_1_2?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1480894515&sr=1-2&keywords=powered+usb+hub

Running on the MSI 990-FXA board and i have:

 

USB Controller: enabled

XHCI Hand-Off: enabled

EHCI Hand-Off: enabled

Legacy USB support: enabled

Onboard USB 3.0 Controller: enabled

 

im unsure of which to change just incase i make an irreversible change. In device manager the USB ports are all set to allow power after shutdown

 

edit: i have checked all my USB ports and my K30 and G502 are set to not be turned off to save power under the 'power management' tab in device manager. Still no luck

Would that not cause input lag of some sort? Just wondering seeing as i do play competitive games a lot

I have my Steel series R700 set up that way and I can't sense any input lag but I don't play especially competitively so maybe I just don't notice it.

you have to disable CPU C states in bios, also enable any charging setting if you have one
