    I have found temporary solution, I pull both the USB cables on my KVM for a few seconds, when they are both pulled I leave them unplugged for 5 seconds and then plug them back in and now the switch is happy again until the next time.

    same here. switch worked for about 3 days, then it started to switch back. strange is that one side of the switch works perfect on both PCs, but when i try to switch to the other side of the switch, no matter which computer is connected to it, its switched immidiately back....

Sadly, it is probably the KVM as this particular model has a string of failures and is only rated 2 out of 5 stars on Amazon due to poor performance. :( What I would do first is plug in Computer 2 directly to the monitor, keyboard and mouse with no KVM. If those work fine, it is probably not a computer issue; if you don't get video here, then it is a seperate issue with that PC. If Computer 2 is working, plug both computers into the KVM but switch the cables (plug Computer 1 into the KVM using Computer 2's cables). If Computer 2 shows up and can't switch to Computer 1, then it is the KVM messing up.

HP PSC 950 auto switch off

The printer is always on despite of the status of the front panel, to turn it off you have to disconnect the power cord.
In some models of HP printers, the printer will power itself ON from "standby" when the PC sends it a printing job and go back to "Standby" when the job has finished printing.

Belkin KVM 2 port switch

Sounds like its not detecting video on the 2nd port. Have you tried switching the computer on port 1 to 2 yet? If the problem moves then I would suspect that computers video card or the cable that connects it to the KVM. Let us know what happens or if you need more assistance.

IPAQ turns itself on

Go to the ActiveSync options of your pocket pc and to go to Mobile Schedule and choose "Manually". I think it's set to sync automatically in a few minutes that's why it turns itself on.
