Intermittent USB port failure

Post by Captain Brillo » Mon Nov 19, 2018 1:15 pm

This is the 3rd box here that has had this problem - keyboard will be dead or mouse will freeze.
Sometimes unplugging/replugging fixes it, most often requires a full shutdown.

In Windows there's a default function that suspends USB ports; sometimes this fails and it must be turned off to fix the issue.
This issue has been both box and device independent and is really getting troublesome.

Is there possibly something similar going on in Linux?
Every time I bork the Linux box, I learn something new - what a blast!
If it ain't broke, fix it anyway! Ha Ha!
