This can be done through BIOS settings on some systems, but it may also require a change to the motherboard jumper for USB devices to +5VSB for the USB ports. Another setting that chan help with errors resulting from sleep sequences is a change in the BIOS from S1 + S3 to just S1 for the system BIOS sleep settings. That problem may be coupled with a message in Event Viewer that shows an error message that the user should check for firmware updates for the system.
