Windows 7: USB Power Settings Reverting

USB Power Settings Reverting

I have a laptop that for some reason when i close the lid the usb shut off and i believe this is due to the usb power settings in the device manager say that the system can turn them off to save power. So when i close the lid the usb shut off. But if i change that setting and tell it not to turn off to save power they work fine.

I am setting this setting on the USB Root Hubs but when i reboot they revert back to being checked off to save power. Any ideas why this may be reverting back to the original state?

1.) Open Power Options in control panel.
2.) Click on Change Plan Settings in whatever plan you're using.
3.) Click on "Change Advanced Power Settings".
4.) Expand "USB Settings".
5.) Click on "USB selective suspend setting".
6.) Select Disable
7.) Click OK
8.) Test to see if it still reverts the USB hub's power settings.
