Post subject:  powerbook aluminium 17" 1.67 USB problem with Mbox 2

Does anyone have a problem with the usb ports on a g4 powerbook 1.67 17" not having enough power to drive external mbox2 . the mbox 2 requires 320ma to 370ma usb should have 500ma but my laptop keeps shutting down my mbox 3 sec on 3 sec off this does not happen on other pc usb laptops which makes me believe the g4 is not workng to specification.
i am totaly disapointed as i have purchased the latest and greatest but ended up with something worse than a half working pc, a not working at all mac.My gut feeling is that the usb output on the g4 aluminium 17" is set to around 350ma and not 500ma standard and is shutting down the power to the mbox and then resetting after 3 second and it just keeps doing this.
i hope this problem gets fixed in a few days or else i am returnig it.
has anyone else had this problem? or heard of a fix? thanks damir
