Disabling the Windows 10 USB selective suspend setting


  • FT-IR
  • Windows 10


Follow the steps in the attachment to disable the WIndows 10 USB selective suspend setting.


Windows 10 includes the USB selective suspend feature that lets you automatically put USB devices in a very low-power state when they’re not actively in use. The feature was built in to prolong battery life on a laptop or tablet, but the feature may cause problems with communications with our FT-IR spectrometers connected to the PC.
