    Epsom Printer, wacom tablet and headphones are my only USB connections

    If the comp. is powered up/re-booted while the printer is turned on, the
    tablet and the mouse, (connected to the "mouse" connection, not a usb
    connection) do not work, in fact they fail to show up in the device panel. If
    however the printer is not powered up and the comp. is turned on\re-booted
    and THEN the printer is turned on, there seems to be no problem at all.

    of course the solution is to always keep the printer turned off before
    booting but I can't help thinking this is only a small part of a larger
    problem that hasn't surfaced yet, anyone else having a similar experience or
    better yet a solution?

    might be a difference in power usage.
    under the USB HUBS in Device Management turn off the option to disable to save power and see if it helps.
