How to disable USB power being turned off

Currently I have a USB mixer plugged into the computer which, works fine on boot, which then turns off after some time even while listening to music/ watching videos ect.

It does come back on if I open sound settings.
I suspect that this is due to some sort of power saving being active for the usb devices…

How might I go about turning that off?


Hello, Try install powertop and open up in terminal and turn off your usb power settings under “tunable”

You will see bunch of options make sure select usb ones.

Great, I have done that, thank you. This program is exactly what I was looking for :slight_smile:
