comment Do USB devices draw current from the computer if a powered hub's current “runs out”?
Also that wasn't the question. e.g. the spec accepts a tree of hubs but the supply may still run out of Current even with less than 500mA on each device.

"in general it simply will not source more than 500mA" This is far from reality. Keyboards with 104 LEDs are known to violate the USB standard and they work almost everywhere, and in most cases that they don't, they aren't explicitly cut off but they just get the power supply to its knees.

I found a workaround with round(), and I heard it's a problem with floating arithmetic. I do not know if it can be fixed.

comment Can I force full speed to the indexing service of Windows?
By the way, for what is worth I noticed that it doesn't take more than 2 to 5 minutes for it to go to full speed so it's not a critical functionality to have in the first place. At least in Windows 8.

Nah, it's just that the overwhelming majority of Windows users either don't reach that deep in asking help for their problem or they never update the generic Windows Update drivers at all (the problem does not appear on ancient or Windows Update drivers).

Wow that's quite a conclusion. "Source code or we can do nothing." Of course you can in several cases there is proper documentation or even a fix.
