    USB still powered after shutdown


    When I shut the computer down after using Mandriva all my USB devices are still powered. Has anyone else experienced this and/or does anyone know how to solve this? I'm running Mandriva 2008 kernel 2.6.22.18

    Cheers

    I've never seen this before, but then I don't think I've ever shutdown a linux box except my laptop, which doesn't have that issue. Is it too big a deal to hit the power button afterwards? Does this happen with other distros?

    I would suggest trying different distros/OSes (ehem...just to test). This sounds like a hardware problem with the motherboard (especially since it's for "all" of your USB devices). Also, what kind of machine are you using? (e.g. desktop, laptop) This might help diagnose the problem.

    A hardware/Bios issue was my first instinct too but alas, it seems to be a Mandriva problem. I have a windoze partition (ahem...which I seldom use) and that shuts down properly. I run a desktop PC with a NF4 mobo, but as I say I get the feeling its more of a kernel issue.

    As suggested above, I could always just unplug the system after shutdown - certainly the simplest solution - but that's not the point. As a linux hobbyist I MUST make this work!!!

    Thanks for the replies both of you
