Sometimes when I start my pc my keyboard and mouse dont respond

Hi,

Some of the time when I start my pc windows loads but when the desktop opens the pc wont recognise any movement form my keyboard and mouse. The light is on on the mouse so it has power but the num lock / caps lock lights dont come on on the keyboard This has happened many times now but normally if I hard reboot the pc a few times it is fine. But I'm just wondering what causes this or how I can fix it. Also pressing num lock sometimes makes it work.

keyboard - razer black widow

mouse - logitech g400

mobo - Asus P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3

cpu - i7 2600k

Do you have your keyboard and mouse plugged in to a USB addon card by chance?
