Q. Why does one of the LEDs on my FP56 stay lit after computer shuts off?
A: Your motherboard may have USB standby or +5Vsb turned on for the ports connected to FP56, this function allows you to turn on computer via keyboard or mouse connected to USB port. If you do not need this function and wish to have FP56’s LED remain off after shutting down computer, please disable “USB standby,” “+5Vsb,” or other similar functions from within the motherboard BIOS menu (refer to your motherboard manual for instructions).
