Is there a way to allow the Signalhound to go to sleep? Even if no applications are running, or if Spike is running in “Idle” mode, my BB60C keeps a pretty steady 50 degrees C.
I’d like to not crawl behind my machine to pull USB cables after each use. 🙂

Unfortunately the device does not have an idle mode. Once plugged in it will draw ~6W regardless of whether is it making a measurement or not. The only way to reduce power consumption is to unplug the unit. The 50C idle temps will not hurt the unit, but I understand it may be undesirable for other reasons. If you want it to be unpowered while not in use, consider a powered hub you could also keep on your desktop. Some hubs have buttons that allow you to turn off that port.
