I'm having an issue with one of my USB devices when coming out of hibernation. I've used this thread to help fix the problem, and it worked just fine for a little while. I'm using it on a slim external DVD drive, my GPS receiver and my Belkin WiFi stick. Two out of the three work flawlessly. The one that doesn't is the DVD drive. I have a hunch that tells me it's has something to do with it getting power straight off the PSU. I was thinking of leaving it unplugged, but I'm sure .5amps (or whatever the USB ports give out) won't be enough to power the drive. So I have the crazy notion of somehow using the power in the USB cable to trigger a relay so that the drive can still get power from the PSU. What do you guys think? Would there be some other solution?
No announcement yet.
Need some hibernation help/suggestions
