USB woes - log file?
      #140934 - 01/19/07 04:08 AM

Okay, we have the computer in the bedroom (until I move it this weekend).... But, in the middle of the night, the stupid thing starts making noises. I'm not good at 'typing' the noise, but it is the two-tone sound like a USB-device being disconnected, then it immediately reconnects. It will do it two or three times in a five or ten second period, after three or four hours of the computer being inactive. I *think* it was at 1:03 am, but I haven't keep exact records (as I'm usually asleep when it happens!!) to see if that's consistent.

Anyway to track it?

Same time each night. Any chance it is something scheduled, like a virus or spyware scan?

Did it just start, or has it been happening for a while?

These are the things that immediately spring to mind. It might be helpful if you could run Task Manager as soon as it happens and see what's active.

Then again, could it be something related to the DSL drop out you are also experiencing?

Is it a Windoze machine?

You might try examining Event Viewer:

Start/Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Event Viewer and look at the
Application and System tools for around that time period.

Steve,

Lol, Ron just posted the same info. Anyway...

Right-click 'My Computer'->Manage Expand 'System Tools', expand 'Event Viewer', then click System. Look for 'Source' events that are named Tcpip or Remote Access. I have cable and dial-up connections. When I connect via cable it's listed as Tcpip, but disconnect events aren't logged. For the dial-up, both connect and disconnect events are listed as Remote Access.

Since I've never dealt with DSL problems, don't know how they'd show up, though I'd suspect as Tcpip.

What kind of devices are connected to the computer? What are the "go to sleep" settings?

Some UPS units run tests at night.
