low power warning

Message #1 - Posted 2004/09/13 - m. r. schaferkotter

greetings;

i/m getting USB low power warning dialogue even though the only thing plugged into the the USB port is the keyboard (with the mouse plugged into the keyboard) after waking the dual G4 1.25 Mhz from sleep.

what is most strange is that the keyboard + mouse goes dead and is only revived if i plug my ipod back into the firewire port and change the USB port that the keyboard uses.

if i unplug the ipod (safely of course), the keyboard goes dead and i have to replicate the sequence of events with the ipod.

any ideas?

BTW. i/ve seen vague references on the net to a 'freezing keyboard' and jerky mouse, which are the symptoms.

I've had intermittant mouse freeze on an iMac. Replacing the mouse cured the problem. The odd thing was that the same mouse would work fine on another machine.
