KVM resolution woes 2: the prequel


Well-known member
Before connecting up the KVM mentioned in the companion thread, I had a Dr Bott DVI/USB KVM connected to 3xG5s and 1x MacPro 2008 and a 23" Cinema Display. The KVM worked splendidly, allowing recognition of the proper screen resolution and so on. However, the thing would randomly switch to the Mac Pro, even when the latter was asleep and during use of one of the G5s. I'd say this was round about once an hour.

Fault in the KVM or something that the Mac Pro itself is doing in the peculiar semi-wake-ups that later iterations of OSX is given to?
