I have been working with my Atom for a couple days and was wondering if Presonus made any movement on fixing this issue because I don't believe it is wise to unplug it because over time the connection will surely begin to fail.

No way to turn off the LEDs at the Atom? 
I use several MIDI controllers and all of them switch off the lights when not in use in the DAW or at the latest when the Mac is in sleep mode. The Atom glows very brightly and this is annoying. 
If this should not work, I hope for a software update for it soon - is this in planning? 
Stay healthy and best regards

Hi,

I have a few devices that need powering down every evening because of the bright lights, so I bought a switched USB hub from Amazon which does the trick perfectly without having to dis/reconnect the cables every time and wearing out the sockets.
