Windows 7: Random failure of USB keyboard

Windows 7 Professional x64
Random failure of USB keyboard

I got a new keyboard 30 days ago. It's a Gigabyte GK-K6800. There is no driver offered by Gigabyte. I have to rely on Windows 7 drivers.

Randomly, the keyboard stops working and i have to unplug the USB from the computer and plug it back in. It then works fine. I cannot find anything that may be triggering this to happen. All USB devices in the device manager show they are working fine. There is no driver in MSCONFIG that needs to start when starting Windows, besides, it does not happen when restarting, it happens randomly during the day.

If anybody knows what may be going on, let me know.

All I can think is the power supplied from the motherboard is not quite enough...I don't know.
