This Toshiba M70 Laptop which I have installed Linux Mint has a problem with the USB failing after being on for a while. 20 min approx I loose support for any Flash drive or external Mouse. The internal mouse pad works fine. Upon a reboot the USB port has the same problem again after a while say 20 minutes. Is there some power saving mode that disables support.?
Also when bringing up a terminal to run a program when it asks for a password to install it refuses to allow me to add any letters at all.
I was try the sudo apt-get install kismet. [ Excuse if the words are wrong as on other computer.] it asks for password but couldn't get any further as unable to add as mentioned.
