Just in case anybody hasn't been informed....
Avoid using devices that draw power from the PC110's PS2 connector, like my Xircom PE3 Parralel port adapter, I should of used it with the AC supply, but in my overzealous pursuit of ultimate portability, I guess I didn't think of the load it would have on the PC110...(the adpater works fine via parallel , but do NOT use the power cable thru the PS2 port!)

In my case this seems to be the culprit of the problem(s) I am now having:

No keyboard after re-awakening from suspend mode.... No matter WIN95,DOS,LINUX... Gotta shut it off & back on to get it back to life.
No operation/boot while Docked in Port Replicator.(LCD displays Normally, but the unit itself is dead).
No operation/boot with the PS2 cable plugged into the PS2 socket on the rear of the PC110 (undocked).

PC110 repair anybody 8-( ...
