Windows 7: Need help with finding a program for controlling my usb ports.

10 Mar 2013   #1

Need help with finding a program for controlling my usb ports.

I have a laptop and am a little bit worried about heat while playing. so i have a usb fan pointing up to the air intake. (this decreses my temps by about 10 degres celsious.) But i hate to go under my desk to turn the fan on when i'm going to play something. Is there any program. that shuts off the usb port and then turns it on when im starts a specific program or if the temps is above let's say like 55degrees ?

Laptops do tend to get warm you could use a Laptop Cooling Stand

Dont really have the money right now and i dont think thats to nice where i have the computer right now... its in a bookshelf with the airintake outside the bookshelf and the laptop stands on a book that has the fans stand underneath it. and the fan is hanging under the airintake. and i think that fan is more efficent than every cooling stands out there. and this fan is positioning to the air intake and not the middle of the laptop

You may try USBDeview.

There is no off\On mechanism, but you can disable a selected USB device and re-enable it easily.

That didnt quite work. the thing with this program ( i think is not to cut the power. instead to disable the program. becouse when i disabled my keyboard ( i didnt really ment to do that) the keyboard lights worked but the keys did not respond. Becouse my usb fan doesent use anything but power. this program wont work. sure its good for other stuff but not for the thhings i whant it for
