I have a 500mhz slot loading G3. After the computer has been sitting, if it is turned on, the keyboard (and other USB devices) will not work. If it is unplugged, it all starts to work. If I restart it, the keyboard works. If I turn it off and then turn it back on, it works. If a device other than the keyboard is plugged in directly, they work no matter what. I swapped keyboards to the same result.

What is going on here? Any fixes for this sort of thing?
