I also agree with checking for a weak breaker.

it's not a trick!...has NOTHING to do with being any type of engineer...it's just the first step of troubleshooting any problem...name what the problem is.

actually the wife has done that before....before me!

The problem is the hair dryer is turned on when she plugs it into the outlet and this creates a larger surge than would occur if she plugged it in with the switch off.

Tell her to plug it in with the switch off and then turn it on.

I'm telling ya, the PROBLEM is that the breaker trips. That is the PROBLEM. Now that we know the PROBLEM, let's start troubleshooting WHY the breaker is tripping.
