Default disabling usb legacy - 04-08-2010, 03:02 AM

I do I go about disabling USB Legacy? I've read that doing this may fix a sleeping issue I'm having with my 10v.


If I close it, and then open it, it will not wake up. It won't wake up with moving the mouse, hitting spacebar, return, esc, or the power button. I eventually have to power it down and power it back on every time and it's kind of annoying.

Can anyone point me to an article or link with some more info on this?

I believe in the BIOS there is an option for disabling Legacy USB... hit F2 after the Dell logo appears and also if you are doing this because of a sleep probelm with OSX (you didnt say what OS you have) I have read where you may have to disable Bluetooth also..if you have it

FYI, disabling USB Legacy support stopped my mini from booting to USB devices (flash drives and CD). At least I think it was that one... there were two USB options in the BIOS I disabled to help fix sleep, and then I couldn't boot to USB drive.

So, if/when you need to install something from a USB drive, just re-enable for the install.

Other than that, I have found no ill effects to disabling USB legacy support.

yes, you are correct, you must re-enable it for certain times...but it is a catch 22 situation either on or the other....depends what you want more, the sleep function or the USB function.....glad it worked...
