    Hi wavelenght.

    While I don't have a solution for why USB devices won't eject, my 64GB key never ejects, I usually just tell my computer to sleep. Once snoozing I pull the plug. I also understand that signing out basically accomplished the same thing but I haven't tested. To sign out use ALT + F4.
