Hi Bobbie,

Wow, is Santa being good to you this year or what? Wish 
Santa would bring me a nice new toy like that :)

It's always a good idea to completely power down the 
system before disconnecting or connecting hardware. Yes, 
some systems and some specific components are designed to 
be "hot-swappable", but when in doubt power down.

USB devices can always be plugged in/unplugged with the 
power on without worry; that's how USB devices are 
designed to operate. Anything else, such as (non-USB) 
mice, printers, monitors, etc. be safe and power the 
system down.

HTH, and Happy Holidays!
