I've recently bought a few Mini S 12's and would like to know if there is a setting in the BIOS to permit wake-on-USB?


Here are some more details:  I'm using these Mini S's as LibreELEC (Linux variant) boxes.  I'd like to be able to turn the Mini S on using the power button on a Microsoft Media Center remote that is connected through the USB ports.  When turning the Mini S off, it appears that the USB ports are deactivated, so when I press the power button on the remote, I don't see the receiver responding to it and the Mini S does not turn on.  I do not recall off-hand what power state I need, but is there a setting in the BIOS that keeps the USB ports powered on even when the rest of the device is powered off and allows the device to be turned on by a USB device?

Thanks!

Hello there,

Generally speaking, after you turn off the PC, there is still power in the USB port.
Do you want to wake on Lan ?

No, I am not looking for Wake-On-LAN, I'm looking for a setting in the BIOS that permits the machine to be turned on or woken by a device plugged into the USB ports.  From what I've seen, the USB ports are not powered when the machine is otherwise turned off.
