Greetings, ye mighty all
I have T43 (2668-75G) with Windows 7 Ultimate.
I noticed that in recent couple of months it started losing USB devices after returining from Sleep/Hibernate modes.
1) Fingerprint reader
2) External keyboard and mouse (when I use the docking station, external USB keyboar and mouse are not recognised unless I reboot while docked).
It is cured by reboot, but that is not really an option.
In addition some USB flas drives are behaving oddly - plugged in, making a sound, not showing up.
I have System Update, regularly update Windows.
Anybody, any ideas?

I was having the same problem,
As time went on, reboot no longer helped, i got to the point of having to make a major change in the Hardware config to get the computer to even turn on let alone use my USB Devices..
I was told on here that it was a "SouthBridge Failure" To fix this problem, i replaced the motherboard, and it seems to have fixed it, almost 100% . I am having some issues random freezes since then but i think my memory might be going as i haven't replaced it since i got this laptop...
hope this helps
there is a thread on here... i cannot find it currently in a hurry but you could prolly search my name to find what i was told.
