"....pariphrial devices are especially notorious for causing the
problems. This is especially true of high end keyboards and mice with
lots of extra features, and of various USB devices. I have even heard of
cases in which USB devices would cause the reboot problem if they were
plugged directly into the system´┐Żs USB port, but the problem would go
