Currently Being ModeratedApr 12, 2009 7:07 PM (in response to i2)Well, as far as I know, the Time Capsule never gets powered down as it is part router and you never turn router off (you can unplug them if there's a problem with them). As far as externally attached USB devices, depending on the device, there should be a power button for them. For example, if you're using a printer, turn it off via the power button. If it's an external hard drive, again there should be a power button (unless its USB-powered in which case you just disconnect it). Hopefully this helps answer your question.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.6), 2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3 Memory, 15.4" Display
Currently Being ModeratedApr 12, 2009 7:38 PM (in response to Technologeek KMJ)My question was about possible data loss or corruption if a Time Capsule connected drive (or USB drive connected to it) isn't unmounted before powering off. This is the normal practice with a hard drive externally connected to your computer via USB or Firewire.20" iMac 2007 Intel Aluminum, 15" PowerBook TI 1000GHz, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

You should probably use the Airport Utility to disconnect all active session first.iMac - MB White - iPhone - AP Extreme, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
