Hi Everyone,

If anyone can help me with the above question, it would be greatly appreciated. I have G55VW and connect an external (firewire) audio interface to the TB port (via an Apple TB to FW adapter). Fortunately, my audio card has its own power supply. So, I don't need TB to power the audio card; although, it is capable of doing so. My concern is whenever I disconnect the TB adapter it is very hot. I would like to avoid this by disabling the power supplied through the TB port. Is this at all possible on the G55VW?

Thanks in advance,
