Any way to stop power going to USB ports when PC turned off?

    Motherboard is MA78GM-S2H. I have turned off the BIOS option to support USB
    drives when booting. When the PC is turned off or put in standby the USB
    ports keep getting power.
    I have an external HDD and because the power stays on, it does not go into
    standby, which in turn means I cannot turn it off using its remote control.
    In other words, I have to get out of bed to turn it off!
    On my previous motherboard, when you turned off the PC, power to the USB
    ports was cut. Any way I can get this board behaving the same way?

    Under Power Management Setup, try disabling USB Wakeup from S3.

    Yep, tried that already, thank you. My last mobo did not support S3 stanby,
    only S1. Maybe if I set the Gigabyte to S1 in the bios all power will be
    cut...but I do like S3 standby! Will give it a try though...
