This reminded me of something ive beenwondering...
I made a usb toothbrush (electric toothbrush that is
powered by usb) and i wondered if it was possible to
controll it through software, as in controlling power
and disabling power to a usb port. also, after using
it, (several days after, i think, maybe weeks) the
mobo would go bad. is there any chance that the
toothbrush would cause a mobo to go out? i only used
the 2 power wires, not the 2 data wires (maybe you
send data over the power wires too?)

anyway thanks for the reply, and if it is possible it
would benice for other usb devices ie a flylight or
flyfan to controll the brighness or speed of the fan
