Hot swapping

You'll hear that usb devices are "hot swappable." This means that you can swap (connect and disconnect) iMac peripherals without having to turn the computer completely off. On other Macintoshes, you must shut down the computer completely before you change any connections. One recommendation, though, is that even though you can swap without turning off the computer, you should at least quit any applications you may have open before you hot swap anything. And never hot-swap while data is going through cables, like when you're copying files to a Zip disk.
