How can I disable a usb port using a shell script? I'm getting Invalid argument errs

How can I disable a usb port using a shell script? I'm getting Invalid argument errs

root@abe-All-Series:/home/abe# echo  suspend >/sys/bus/usb/devices/usb3/power/level
bash: echo: write error: Invalid argument

root@abe-All-Series:/home/abe# echo  suspend | tee /sys/bus/usb/devices/usb3/power/level
tee: /sys/bus/usb/devices/usb3/power/level: Invalid argument

root@abe-All-Series:/home/abe# echo  on | tee /sys/bus/usb/devices/usb3/power/level
Its not allowing me to change the file to suspend.

The suspend setting is no longer supported.

This might work.
echo "0" > "/sys/bus/usb/devices/usbX/power/autosuspend_delay_ms"
echo "auto" > "/sys/bus/usb/devices/usbX/power/control"
