My motherboard has a "Disable ME" jumper. Not good enough for many of you, I know. As far as AMT, apparently the entry is through Intel NICs. I hoped to mitigate it by using a third party NIC. The Intel device stayed lit (amber, not green) on power off, my new one is completely off when powered off. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
