Re: Power problem
Definitely a power supply problem. Do you have a printer, scanner, other USB devices hooked up to your PC? Also do you have many hard disks in your system and a powerful video card that consumes a lot of energy. At startup, there is a peak demand for power which may only last a second or so, and once the devices gets rolling the power consumption levels off.
You mention that this happens only when your system is cool; why don't you set your PC power mode to shut down your monitor, hard disk, standby mode. This way you may not have to go throught this unplugging sequence. That or get a bigger power supply to meet your powering on demand.
