- George has a problem with his camcorder. The camera is attached to the computer using a USB cable. When the computer is turned on, the camcorder comes on automatically. But, when the computer is turned off, the camcorder does not turn off. What tool or Control Panel applet will accomplish the goal of turning off the camcorder when the computer shuts down?
Device Manager. Open the Properties dialog box for the camera or the USB root hub, and click the Power Management tab. The tab contains two options. One configures whether to turn off the device when the computer shuts down and the other defines whether the device can bring the computer out of standby mode. Once the root hub is configured, all the devices attached to the USB hub will be affected by the configuration.
