Hi, I'm new to the 'Maschine Mikro Mk3'. After using it for the first time; when I closed the 'Maschine' software, all the lights turned off on the 'Mikro'. I think that it's powered off, but dk. Should I leave it like this, or is it better to unplug the Usb? My PC is usually in "sleep" mode when not in use; so it still powers the Usb. Any help would be great. Thanks

    @Guitarbinge86 When you close the Maschine software the unit is still powered. If you press SHIFT + the Maschine logo you will see the unit go to MIDI mode and light up. To save power, unplugging the USB would be the better option.

    Well, if you want to save more power, then it is better to unplug the USB after finishing the session with your hardware.

    Okay, that makes sense. Thank you both for the help. I'll unplug it.
