OpenCPN - NMEA Connection

I run OpenCPN 4.0 under Win 7 on an ASUS netbook. I put it into hibernation when not in use, but when I wake it up, the boat position won't refresh until I unplug and then reconnect the USB connection that carries the NMEA data from the GPS.

It's a little thing, but one of those annoyances I'd like to be rid of. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I might get this connection to auto-refresh when the computer wakes up? The USB-Serial port driver is PL2303HX.

Cheers, Graeme

Sounds like power management is shutting down your USB port. |

Go into Control Panel and find power options
Change plan settings
Change advanced power settings
Find USB settings and make sure that any "Selective suspend" etc.. are disabled.

You can fine tune sleep, hard disk shutdown etc.. in there too.

Hope this helps..
