comment acpi-support script missing in rc.d
@JavierRivera, thanks for the info. there are four S99acpi-support* and one K20acpi-support* links in /etc/rc{1,2,3,4,5}.d/. I thought I better ask around before I remove all 5 of them.

comment How do you reset a USB device from the command line?
This works with ubuntu 13.10. The device ID can vary. TO get it for the mouse I have wrapped above code in few shell commands echo $(lsusb | grep Mouse) mouse=$( lsusb | grep Mouse | perl -nE "/\D+(\d+)\D+(\d+).+/; print qq(\$1/\$2)") sudo /path/to/c-program/usbreset /dev/bus/usb/$mouse
