USB Always On Option

Question

Is there an option somewhere to turn the USB ports to always be powered on? I two LG TVs and have a Chrome Cast and a Fire TV plugged in that I would like to remain on even when the TV is off. Looked around the menus and could not find. Thanks

Ease of power cords and cleanliness of wires. The USB ports are right there and unless I were to attach a thumb drive, I am not sure what purpose they serve besides offering power.

Ever find a solution to this? I would really like to have this option as well

Why don't you use an external power adaptet? 

thanks for the idea!  I, too, was looking for cord management and this idea never occurred to me.  I busted out the USB extension & power adaptor I sure was going straight to the landfill and problem solved: we dont have to wait for the Roku to boot & probably what was more concerning was the TV freaks out while the Roku boots (flashes black multiple times) & once crashed the display driver to the point of being all green with lots of vertical black lines - unplugging the TV was the only way to reboot it.  needless to say, on a 1d old TV, not very comforting - now we dont have to worry about this failure vector!

and, for the record, it would be great if WebOS had a s/w switch to enable USB ports to always be powered.

      I often feel the need to turn off my TV's screen after I select a playlist and start playing. Can we have this option in the Spotify app. We do have this option in the inbuilt music player where we can turn off the display while the music plays in the background and we can turn the display back on by pressing volume up button on the remote. Felt that this option could be added to Spotify app as well.
      Thanks

      Hi guys, is there a way to turn off the pop up recommendations on the latest updates when you hover over apps? My kids use the TV often and sometimes inappropriate thumbnails appear and I would rather have it off.
      Thanks.
