I have a USB powered KVM switch. When I come out of Vista sleep mode, not enough power is coming out to power the KVM, then I have to restart my computer. How can I change the power options for USB in vista? I went to the control panel then power options, but I couldn't find what I was looking for. Thanks.

Your best bet may to be a powered USB hub. If you have this prob, then any added USB devices will take more power. Generally, a pwered hub will give enough power for just about anything :)

So, your basically saying to get another kvm. I ordered it online and I am not wanting to pay shipping and a restocking fee. Are you sure there is nothing I can do?

Check the manual and look at the thing its self. If it has a power plug on it you just need to buy the right adapter for it(after you get it you might need to flip a switch on it to change its setting) if it dosn't your prob outa luck and have to get a new one.

Ok, I would need something cheap. I am just switching between 2 home computers. I am not willing to pay 100 bucks.

Also, I have another questions. I am using the usb connectors that are directly connected to the mobo. I also have a pci usb slot. Would putting it there help at all?

Thanks.

It might, I would give it a try. It depends on the system and PCI card.
