comment What causes usb ports to power off
By default USB power saving IS turned on in Windows 7, so as Kruug stated if it hasn't been changed it is likely the source of the problem.

comment Move Windows 7 Hibernation file
Apologies if it was incorrect. I very much doubt your hibernation file is actually on the hibernation partition. A simple Googling will tell you that it HAS to be on the boot drive. I can't find any evidence that it's possible to have it anywhere else...

comment Menu bar full, some items are not shown
You say there is space, but from your image i wouldn't consider that space, even if there is technically enough of it to accommodate the Dropbox icon! Try hiding your name as i suggested?

comment Menu bar full, some items are not shown
Is there even enough space to force it to show all menu bar items? Have you tried hiding your name to increase the space available for icons? There are plenty of guides on how to do so.

comment Menu bar full, some items are not shown
What do you actually mean by the 'menu bar'? Do you mean the dock? The only way to get it to show all items is to reduce the size of the dock.

Try disconnecting all unnecessary USB/other devices before install, and see if that works.

comment What characters are not allowed in SkyDrive file names?
According to the Microsoft support forum, the maximum filename length for Skydrive is 230 characters. Yours being 77, I doubt that is the problem. Are you sure there isn't a space at the end of the filename? According to the following guide, that would cause an issue: windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/skydrive/upload-file-cant-faq

comment How can I share Tampermonkey scripts between versions of Chrome?
The current beta version of Tampermonkey lists "easily sync/install your scripts from a single document" as a feature. Have you tried it out?

comment Slow browsing but fast torrent
Also, what kind of responses do you get when pinging remote servers? Have you tried changing your DNS to some OpenDNS servers to check if the problem persists?

comment Slow browsing but fast torrent
Interesting about the noise though. Have you contacted your ISP to determine that the line is in fact working correctly? Your problem sounds suspiciously similar to one i had at an office where I worked. We went through every solution known to mankind, before finding out it was our ISP.
