    USB devices only working After sleep mode


    Hello,

    So I've got a laptop (Asus N56VJ) running Windows 8.1 64bit, and my USB ports only work AFTER I put it in sleep mode. My laptop won't even send power to it. So when I turn it on, I have to close the lid and reopen it for the USB ports to work. I've got all the power saving settings turned off, so that can't be it. Strange, huh?

    I'm thinking it's a driver issue, but I'm not really sure what direction to look for.
    These are the drivers that are currently installed:

    Thanks in advance!

    Okay, so I "solved" the problem.

    I disabled USB 3.0 in the BIOS, this seems to have fixed it.
