Default Bypassing mbox preamps

is there a way to bypass the preamps in the mbox and just use it as an interface to connect to the computer?

edit: i probably should've specified that i'm using the Mbox2 mini

as long as the 48 volt switch isn't depressed the pre-amps shouldn't be activated.

The preamp is always activated, even if phantom is off. Unless the mini has a SPDIF input, you cannot bypass the preamps. Why do you want to do this? Maybe someone will have a better idea for you.
