I regularly visit Stack Exchange to help out people with their questions and help maintain the community. Located in Belgium, I am studying Computer Science at the University of Antwerp.

When I think a post can be improved I will try to do so by fixing grammatical or spelling errors, clarifying meaning without changing it, correcting minor mistakes, adding related resources or links. For the less obvious things of those I will leave a note in the edit, click on the date to see this.

I will only edit content in posts once, and let the author or other users be free to choose to rollback; when there are opposing views, we can raise this to meta to let the majority decide which revision of the post they want.

This will be done with respect of the original author and when I'm sure enough that it would only improve the post, if you need to contact me then you can e-mail me at the following address:

Or if you have enough reputation, try to send me a message with @TomWij on the Super User Chat where I am usually when I am online.

Have a nice day! :)

@endolith: That's why you should NOT post multiple answers as multiple answers: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/25209/…

@endolith: Yes, I've definitely read and replied to my own answer! You'll get less confused if you look at its green check mark. They could be distinct if both of them were not to list the power of USB devices, but then they would not even qualify as answers... :-)

@endolith: You must be confused. The OP is a Linux user whom has accepted my answer, confirming that it works. From the screenshots can be seen that Windows shows this as well, confirming that it works as well. This makes it one confirmed OS-agnostic solution, they are not distinct solutions. The link you've given is there for distinct solutions, for example with software recommendations, which are off-topic here anyway.

Figured out it was a troll that wanders around the sites, not a targeted attempt; it can be a bit scary at first, but glad nothing really happened. Yeah, throttling for the win! No more mail bombs in the future... :-)

comment Laptop shutting down
However, that's just one possibility. It might also be the case that the battery of your laptop is broken, causing unstable power while it is inserted. It may very well be that the power supply of the laptop itself is unstable. It even may be that one of the laptop's components draws power in an unstable way when under load. Typically to resolve this the power supply and battery charger is diagnosed. Diagnosing the power circuit of the laptop itself requires you to know a bit about electronics. If all else fails, you can however test the laptop removing some of it's non-vital components...
