Is it safe to unplug a USB audio interface

hi dumb question i just got a focusrite scarlett 2i2 audio interface just wondering is it safe to unplug it from the laptop or do you keep it turned on all the time ?.

Unplugging is the same as turning the computer off, unless Focusrite has a particularly bad implementation. It's of course a bad idea to unplug while there are applications that are actually using the interface. Some may not recover and crash.

It's not like firewire.

Unplugging a USB interface isnt an issue. Just dont do it while its being used.. sounds like not so much of a good idea.
