Been fighting with this one for several days now and can really use some help please.
Basically what's happening is that the 3 USB joysticks connected to my Windows 7 64bit brand new system are installed properly, calibrated, and working perfectly until Windows 7 goes to sleep (display 15 min...CPU 30min).
When the system comes back up again after a key press or mouse click (both working BTW) all 3 controllers are stone cold dead.
It's notable that I have researched the manufacturer's end of this extensively and have completely discounted their drivers
and software as the issue source. The problem can be replicated using the on board Windows 7 controller drivers with the manufacturer's software uninstalled completely from the system. Same result. Perfect controllers before sleep, dead as a doornail after sleep.
I've tried just about everything I know to isolate the issue.
Someone suggested going into power management on the USB hubs in device manager and UNCHECK "Allow computer to turn off this device". This sounds like it might be a solution but when I try to uncheck the hubs, the check mark keeps coming back on me. Windows won't allow me to do this. Am I missing something that I'm not doing that will allow me to make this change ?
Anyway, if anyone has any ideas on this issue, I'll really appreciate your time and effort in advising me.
