    This is a strange problem. I have a linksys g wireless adapter plugged into the usb. Recently comcast installed cable internet and I have an ethernet connection now and wanted to move wireless adapter to another computer...When I unplug the adapter the monitor shuts off and the computer seems to want to go to sleep mode. If I plug it back in, it runs perfectly fine. I have tried a ton of different stuff but still I get this problem. Running computer in safe mode does not cause this problem while the adapter is unplugged however.

    I searched high and dry on the internet and really could not find another person with the same problem. I have a lot of knowledge with computers and hardware but never have I been baffled like this. I have tried everything from deleting the device in device manager to a system restore to previous date. No matter what I have tried my computer has an dependency of sorts on this wireless card! Any ideas?
