Sounds like a kernel problem. More
specifically a driver. See if you can narrow it down to a device.
Try disabling the usb bus and pull out a ps/2 mouse. Does your wireless
die out? Try diabling the ndiswrapper does usb die? The problem may
be as simple as getting a wireless card that has native support, as ndiswrapper
is kind of a hack or it could be your beta supported webcam you got for free, I

Subject: USBs stop working
I have a amd64 asus l5d with unofficial sarge
3.1 and 2.6.14-amd64 kernel,
while I'm working with my laptop, for some
reasons I do not know, it shuts down the usbs and so, every device plugged in,
So I can't use mouse, external usb hard disk and
But this is not enough... when the usbs go down stops
working also the sound card, the lan and the wireless too, it loses the essid
and I've to reboot if I want it to work again.
I don't know for sure if
only this devices stop working and no other... might be some other devices but
I do not know for sure.
If I unplug the mouse, after it has been shutted
down, dmesg reports me that the device has been unplugged but if I plug in
amother time the mouse it doesn't work.
When the usbs are down and the
wireless does not work if I try to unplug the wireless module (plugged in with
ndiswrapper) the system freezes and I have to shut it down keeping the button
Moreover, if I keep the mouse plugged in when it stops
working and I move touchpad and usb mouse at the same time the cursor moves
intermittently and seems to be disturbed by the usb mouse... so there should
be some interaction although external mouse does not work.
I tried to
install NFORCE driver from nvidia site but it doesn't work,
I have the same
problem with 32bit debian and kernel,
I tried also some other kernel, 2.4;
