    Cannot use the external keyboard's USB sockets anymore for mouse or printer.

    Warning says not enough power, use computer's plug ... But there are none left.

    Tried to adjust power managment.

    No betterment.

    And oh, can't boot from DiskWarrior CD anymore ...

    Anyone else having similar issues?

    That is weird. On my MacBook (10.5.7) I am using an external keyboard, and Printers, Scanners and External HDs all work. Which machine is this occuring on??

    It's a Powerbook G4 17" that was still running strong until this update ...

    My iMac has decided that if it is asleep overnight it doesn't want to wake up in the morning. No problems if it is asleep during the day, just overnight.

    I have a feeling it may be related to EyeTV, as I had a similar issue for a time when the Mac would wake itself up from sleep overnight instead. Unfortunately I just haven't had enough time at home to look at it yet, so just shutting the computer down overnight will have to do for the moment.
