Hi,

Time ago, I had a problem with strong USB power save, which finally were solved:
https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-7583846.htmln

Now, with new UDEV the problem is again. After 5-15 sec. my usb mouse is switched off - I need to plug off and plug in, even AUTOSUSPEND is disabled globally :twisted:
Code:
# Enable Runtime autosuspend feature?
# Set to 0 to disable
CONTROL_RUNTIME_AUTOSUSPEND=0

Sorry. It was mouse failure, I have bought a new mouse and the problem is gone so far.

May I ask which version of udev are you using?

I'm not sure about this yet, if it's udev-related, but a while ago, my Logitech G15 keyboard started acting funky. It would occasionally not respond to key-presses, leaving out text I had typed.

More specifically:
  • Sometimes, usually after about two (2) seconds of inactivity, a key-press would go without actually doing something. Moreover, if the key were to be held down, noticed with the alt-key first when “alt-tabbing”, the keyboard would not respond until I release that key. In fact, I could change the key to something else, for example, hold down alt, hold down spacebar, release alt, and nothing would seemingly change. During this, I could press down any other key and it would do nothing (from the looks of it) until I released all keys.

  • Sometimes the wheel commonly used to adjust volume would not do anything. Whenever this happened, the above would not happen (missing key-strokes would, I think, never happen). Furthermore, when this happened, shutting down or re-booting the machine would get stuck at “re-mounting / readonly”, the machine requiring to be powered off manually. The macro-keys via g15macro would not work during this either. The application seemed to start OK, but die off immediately without obvious signs in the terminal or elsewhere.

  • Enabling USB debugging messages would lead me to believe that whenever the key-strokes missing happened, it was because of USB-autosuspend, but that's mostly me guessing. Reading some on the power-management, it seemed to me that this should not be happening for this device at all. It also looked like, at some point, that if I'm not running the g15daemon (various controls for the keyboard and its LCD), the key-strokes missing would not happen.
All this added to that the machine would sometimes actually shut down when re-boot command was given, and that the USB-port(s) would not power up a mouse even when the keyboard died, led me to believe it was the motherboard, but trying a different board had this happen as well.

Hardware and kernel being perhaps my prime suspects, after reading this topic of yours here, I went ahead and downgraded sys-fs/eudev-3.1.2 to 3.0 and I'm on my third day without any of the above happening.


What I am getting at, is that perhaps you could give your old trusty mouse another chance. ^^

It could also give me more information to pursue this issue with, but perhaps it's more likely that all this has something to do with my particular set-up (and a sign that I should no longer postpone the move to static-dev with this machine as well), but I figured I'd post just in case!


Possibly keyboard-only related, and indeed, I might not be the only one in this: https://github.com/systemd/systemd/issues/340
