I recently installed a Lacrosse Technology weather station package that talks to their wall-mounted monitor via a wireless USB device they provide. It works...for a little while, then loses the connection. Their FAQ suggests that Windows automatically shuts down USB devices it thinks are idle.
Can anyone verify this and if so, suggest a way to override this so the device doesn't get shut down? The connection needs to remain active to collect weather data continuously.
This is installed on an XP 64 box with current patches.
