USB devices won't wake up

Message #1 - Posted 2006/02/20 - Alan

On a 10.3.9 iMac: after I wake up the Mac itself, USB devices often don't wake up. This is true for a zip drive plugged directly into a USB port and for a scanner connected via a USB hub. I often have to unplug/replug to get the zip cartridge to mount or the scanner to be recognized.

Why does this happen and what can I do about it?
