Ok, I won't argue with that; a "it fails in this scenario" overrides
a "it works for me".  I will add though, that were it got into the state
described above was where I was able to recover it by using the reset
button.  You might want to try that next time instead of the cable
disconnect solution.

But no, it shouldn't happen to begin with, and that power aspect is 
clearly a design flaw.

If I had a better make/model to recommend, I'd mention it, but I don't.
I suspect that they are out there, but I can't say which.
