USB 2.0 pci card & deep sleep

Message #1 - Posted 2005/01/23 - Big Sword

I'm looking for a USB 2 pci card that will support DEEP SLEEP for my G4 450 DP machine running OS 10.2.8 and maybe 10.3x soon.

The card should should have 4 or 5 ports, cost $10 - $20 and hopefully support 2.0 speed under 10.2.8. There probably will not be any storage or card readers attached to this card, only scanners, printers, Bluetooth Dongle, PDA dock ect. so waking up from deep sleep will not cause problems when the pci bus wakes up.

Thanks for any Info

Will you go to $30? If so, the Keyspan U2PCI-5 is the ticket. <http://www.keyspan.com/products/usb/u2pci5/>. I used one in my G4 450DP with a Nikon scanner. No problems with sleep.
