I have a Dell Precision 5520 (laptop) and as it's my only Windows PC I'm unable to see if it's a Dell or Windows problem.
I use various types of hardware such as CAN bus analyzers, MCU programmers and various others which each has their own software.
The problem I have is that if the PC sleeps, upon wake up the software sees the hardware as disconnected. Some software crashes and some I have to reconfigure or mess around to get it to work again.
Is there a way I can get the PC to sleep without disconnecting USB devices?
