OK - that makes more sense. You may be able to disable it by explicitly
disabling the HID USB driver for the Huey.

Yes, people asked for support for it, so it was added. I'm not sure
the in-built Huey has ever been made use of with Argyll though, since
no-one was able to determine how to keep the display active
