Logitech Webcam C930e

I was wondering if anyone might have a workaround with an issue we have with a Logitech C930e webcam that we would like to be using.  If the correct settings can be set and retained we find it is a better camera than any of the other cameras we have tested.  The problem is that the settings which are established through the built in Microsoft windows driver are not retained once the USB port has lost power (during reboot.)

We use our webcams on multiuser computers which we do not want to monitor constantly for reboots and do not want to leave the computers powered on all the time and would prefer not to consider hibernation.

We've found that the webcams store the options (autofocus, low light compensation) on the device.  We assume this is why the setting is lost when the USB power to the device is dropped.

Does anyone have any expierence with this or does anyone have any programtic workarounds to set these settings during login?

There is an option on some BIOS, which continually provides power to USB devices even when the host device is turned off.

Thanks.  We've found that even on the computers we have which offer the option for always on USB a reboot causes the setting to be lost.  Maybe it drops the power to the USB just momentarily during a reboot or something.
