I seem to be having some problems with my set-up, this is by no means a new issue either.
I have a HP NC6120 laptop running windows xp sp3. This is my 'diagnostic' laptop and as free from clutter as possible - having only software relavent to diagnostics on it. It has no parts fiches or TIS guides etc - these all being on another computer.
At times (and to my great annoyance yesterday) the scope seeems to turn off - ie. the red light goes out and the software becomes very slow and can usually only be remedied by unplugging the scope, closing the software and plugging the scope back in, then restarting the software.
Does this sound like a software or hardware issue, the laptop is always plugged into the mains, and all the USB settings are configured to prevent the computer turning off the power to the USB ports.
This is not a constant problem, and lately there hasn't been very much work in requiring the scope, but its really annoying when I want to use it and it wont play ball.
