Disabling Mouse Lights
Posted on 2004-08-18
I have a labtop with a usb optical mouse that i leave running in my bedroom almost constantly. Problem is that light from the usb mouse is really starting to get on my nerves when im not actively using it. Ive been trying to figure out a way to get the system to disable the mouse or the usb port in order to shut off the light when im not at the desk. Setting it to go into stand by seemed to kill the monitor and harddrive, but i want everything to remain running. In standby mode the mouse light was still on anyway. I figured out that if i disabled the correct usb root hub in device manager it would kill the mouse, but I would really prefer something automatic so i wouldnt have to kill it every time i left the desk.
