Hi all.


I’ve got another good one!


I’m experiencing power down issues when I have any of my USB hubs connected to my mac mini running dual boot Tiger & Debian 2.6.16/17 kernels.


My mac mini appears to shut down as expected and blanks the screen and turns off the internal fans etc, however when pressing the power button to restart the machine its apparent that the unit wont turn on until I depress it for 5 seconds, at which point you can hear the what I think is the disks powering down, with the machine finally shutting itself off fully. Once this has been done, the machine fires up as normal.


This doesn’t happen when shutting down from OSX with any the same USB hubs attached, so I believe it’s an issue with linux and the shutdown process. Has anyone experienced anything similar or have any suggestions please? This doesn’t pose an issue with reboot, just the shutdown with USB devices connected.


Thanks in advance
