View Full Version : usb mouse shuts off after some time.

any idea why a usb mouse connected to my laptop would randomly turn off?

if i unplug it and put it in another port it still wont work.

earlier i put a usb thumb drive in and that caused it to stop working.

any ideas why it would turn off like that?? i need to restart fc8 to get it to work again.

What appears in /var/log/message and the output of "dmesg". My hunch is that it's a hardware issue (some USB ports just won't supply the 15ma or whatever and flake out.
