USB hosed after sleep - sometimes

Message #1 - Posted 2004/05/01 - Ron

I have an I-Mac running Panther 10.3.3. About 40% of the time when I wake it from sleep, the keyboard & mouse are frozen (mouse is pluged into keyboard).

If I unplug the keyboard from the back of the I-mac & plug it back in, mouse & keyboard work fine - they un-freeze. Same thing with my I-sub subwoofer. Sometimes it fails when I wake the I-Mac from sleep, but when I unplug it & plug it back in to the USB jack, it works fine. I'm told that unplugging & plugging back in resets the USB in the system - but what do I know?

BTW, my usb printer seems to work no matter what.

Any ideas on how I can fix this USB failure? - is there a script that could be automatically run everytime the computer wakes up which re-sets the USB? Or something?

Thanks

Mine only does that when I let the energy saver sleep it. It does not do that when I sleep it manually.
