Hi

I have purchased and installed the Lindy HDMI/USB switch to switch between my work laptop (in a dock) and my old home desktop. However if I switch off the laptop the desktop looses keyboard and mouse and I get the switch relay clicking away in the background. Having swapped things around and tried my own laptop (without dock) it would seem to be the USB on the old desktop is not providing enough juice to power the switch.

Does this sound credible?

thanks

Ian

It does sound like it could be power related.

Could you provide the item / part number for the device?
