Topic: "turning off" the USB port
I decided to put the USB port of my chumby to good use for the summer by plugging in one of these cheap bendable USB fans ... and its a nice bedside breeze. http://imgur.com/BjkIe?tags
The thing is that most of these USB fans don't have a on/off switch, which means you have to unplug it to turn it off.
What I want to do is turn if off by software, for example when using the music timer I also want the fan to be turned off.
However the fan is not detected by the system, it's only using the USB port for power.
So I was wondering if there are any ways to "turn off" the USB port by software?
