If you configure your Windows XP-based computer to wake on input from a USB device (the keyboard, in this case), the keyboard may remain inactive after you resume the computer from standby or suspend. The USB port remains unusable after this problem occurs. In Device Manager, under the Universal Serial Bus Controller branch, you see an "Unknown" device without an exclamation point. The device status is "No Drivers are installed for this device." Also, no Human Input Devices are listed in Device Manager.
