I also posted regarding this lockup; and I also have to disconnect
power. It understood from another poster (sorry I cant remember who)
that this is known issues and is caused by the VIA PCI to USB
chip/driver. The poster indicated that they will be looking into it to
resolve the issue - it's on their todo list.
