My device problem is that USB ports go to sleep and I have to unplug and
plug to wake them up. I followed what you suggested and I think the
onscreen popups that give a USB error have stopped, but I still have one
left: my CH Yoke and Pedals for FSX are usually asleep when I start up FSX.
After unplugging and plugging, it wakes up and works. It usually doesn't
fail after waking up, except for one time when my USB printer wouldn't wake
up until I unplugged and replugged the power cord (it has a USB wakeup, so
it doesn't completely restart when a print job "turns it on"). The mobo
port works the best; I have more trouble with the rear ports that connect to
USB connectors on the mobo, and the least success using USB hubs. I
absolutely have to connect my USB mouse to the main mobo USB jack or it's
dead. I suspect it has something to do with speed.
