ON/OFF ability via software
« on: November 17, 2017, 11:13:33 pm »
Currently, my computer's USB ports stay ON when I shut down.  This means that the Keylab Essential is continuously powered.  It shouldn't be an issue, technically but, the display window and some of the buttons stay lit.
It would be good if there was an OFF/ON function on a separate piece of software to cause the keyboard to shut down or give the appearance of being shut off.  This way, I don't have to continuously pull the USB plug and plug it back in constantly which, will eventually cause problems with the contacts, either on the USB wire itself or worse, the USB connector in the keyboard.

Yeah this would be very cool, or maybe even some kind of key combination on the controller itself to put it to sleep.

Maybe there could be an option in MIDI Control Center, like the one for turning on/off the Vegas Mode, you could turn on/off standby after 30 minutes or something, shouldn't be to hard to implement as they Vegas mode is also toggled when the Keylab isn't used for some time.
