    USB Hub stays powered when I turn off car...any resolution?

    Hey, I have a usb hub powered by my epia m10000 using a 150watt opus. When I turn off my car and after my opus shuts down the computer, my usb hub stays lit. Is there any way to resolve this?

    This is the normal behavior of the Opus 150w. There are several work-arounds involving relays and alternate power sources for your USB 5V rail. Search the forums, it has been discussed MANY times.

    The PSU keeps drawing power even when the computer is off. You must physically (via a switch, relay, etc) cut power to the PSU.
