    Default Curious 11.4 kde fault

    Hoping some one else has experienced this and know what caused it.

    I left my PC powered up and doing absolutely nothing for 1 week. When I came back and plugged in a usb drive the system failed to pick it up. No notification and no signs of it in dolphin.

    Logged out and back into kde and it worked again.

    never happened to me since i don't leave my PC on w/o using it for so
    long, but i seem to remember that there used to be some power management
    bugs with certain hardware configurations. KDE 4.6.0 isn't what KDE
    considers 'stable;' that would be 4.6.3 now, with not much changes in
    functionality / features, but several bug fixes.

    i've seen it (rarely) that USB sticks didn't get picked up automatically,
    but this didn't happen in a consistent or reproducible way. if you don't
    feel like logging out & in, you can always type "fdisk -l" into a (root)
    terminal and mount the partition you want manually.
