Need help with USB game controller



i got a gravis gamepad pro (USB) and for some dumb reason everytime my comp goes on stand-by it wont work. I have to restart my computer to get it to work. I even tried unplugging it and plugging it back in (that used to work). Is there a way i can just pick it up and use it every time flawlessly? Please help.

Perhaps new drivers from work? I used to have the same problem with the 'old' gameport version of that gamepad and since then it runs smoothly (until my gamepad stopped working :().


tried that i have all the updated drivers.

its connected to a USB HUB but everything else on the hub doesnt go on standby. LIke my zip drive but sometimes my printer does the same thing. it too is connected to the hub

I think I know the cause of your problem. Is your USB-hub self-powered (with a powercable) or non-powered (with only a USB-cable to your PC)? If the last option applies, then you might have a tiny 'power-failure' with your hub, since each device has to share the power give to the devices, especially the ones that don't have a separate powercord. A self-powered hub also shares the power to each of the devices, but it can share more power, since it draws it's power directly from your wall-plug and not only from your computer, which has only a limited amount of power to share to a USB-port.

Hope this helps.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
