USB PCI cards and deep sleep / wake-up problem...

in General Discussion edited January 2014
I have several USB devices that like to be directly connected to the computer via USB, making my QuickSilver 2002's two built-in USB ports wholly inadequate. What I thought would be a simple solution has turned into anything but. I've tried two USB 2.0 PCI adapters because they are almost as inexpensive as USB 1.1 cards.

Both cards don't allow my computer to deep sleep, nor do they allow my computer to wake up from the half-sleeping state they end up in.

Is anybody using a USB PCI card that doesn't prevent the Mac from entering deep sleep...and waking up? I tried the 5-port SIIG and OrangeMicro USB 2.0 cards for reference.


EDIT: This may be a problem associated with QuickSilvers only...

    Yep. I bought the Belkin 2 Port PCI card (USB 1.1, not 2.0) from Wal-Mart for around $20 bucks. Works perfectly with deep sleep on my Quicksilver 933.
