I have Sound card, Camera devices USB interface, all of them i have are 500mA MaxPower showing using lsusb -v | grep MaxPower

Now those hardwares with Linux works about 1 hour or half hour and then Linux Kernel get freaked out, its a another gateway to crash Linux by simply putting such high powered USB devices in servers or desktop or in office networks, then the system will function incorrectly, like exploit.

How do we in Linux resolve this issue? Or is there any external devices which can feed accurate 500mA to the USB And that USB connects to Linux?

Any idea how to get ride of such issue.
