    Default What is the correct way to switch on/off MF?

    What's the best moment to Plug/unplug MF by USB (in order to give to MF a loger life..)?
    I mean: when the computer is on or when it is off?
    If I would put a switch what I have to do on the board?

    My MF says on even when my PC is switched off - must be something with my USB ports on my board but I don't get it with other USB devices. I'm keen to know the answer.

    Switch on - plug the cable in
    Switch off - remove the cable

    There is absolutley no need for a on/off switch - how many soley bus powered devices have you ever seen with this feature?

    As I said my is the only USB device that I have that seems to stay "on" when I turn my PC off so it's some function of my motherboard's USB ports but also the MF as all my other devices turn off.

    No dramas tho
