No Problems

No problems what this setting is for is say for instance your computer is off and you wanted to be able to turn it on kinda like you do with the screen saver by moving the mouse or hitting a key on the keyboard having this enabled in the bios gives you the ability to set that up by providing stand by voltage to the PS/2 and USB ports that same stand by voltage is what's keeping your hub on

Hello mwrichards Welcome to the Se7en Forums!

The problem with changing the bios setting in the power section of the bios is that it won't work for the usb hub. Those options seen on most newer boards in the last few years are for the power on by usb keyboard or p/s 2 mouse.

With both of those disabled here with one hub the two lights represent the power from the ac adapter is present(blue led) and the second is seen lit when the system is powered on. The blue led for ac power is on 24/7 since that shows the adapter is seeing wall current present there and still plugged in.
