USB Sleep mode for Sensors?

Hi, I often hear a USB plug/unplug sound in Windows 10. I unplugged all my USB devices and connected my 2 sensors only, in other USB ports and the sound still happens. Without the sensors but with my steering wheel and X1 controller plugged I never hear this sound (same usb3 ports). So, I was wondering if the Sensors go into a kind of sleep mode after some time?

I built my computer the same day I bought the Rift so I'm worried if there is an issue with my sensors or my motherboard.

    Have you disabled USB selective power in power profile options, and also disabled "Let computer put this device to sleep" option for all USB controllers in Device Manager?


    Do this for the sensors and all USB controllers

    Core i7-7700k @ 4.9 Ghz | 32 GB DDR4 Corsair Vengeance @ 3000Mhz | 2x 1TB Samsung Evo | 2x 4GB WD Black
    ASUS MAXIMUS IX HERO | MSI AERO GTX 1080 OC @ 2000Mhz | Corsair Carbide Series 400C White (RGB FTW!) 

    Be kind to one another :)

    annoyingly you have to revisit this sometimes as Microsoft are being particularly doosh-baggy about resetting the device configs when updates come out.
    Though you are more than slightly incoherent, I agree with you Madam,
    a plum is a terrible thing to do to a nostril.
