USB Timeout Period, KVM Problems

Is there a setting somewhere sets a timeout period for USB inactivity.
Better stated: I have an IOGear USB KVM that I use with the FreeBSD
system I am writing this on (4.9) and every 2 hrs., the KVM stops
functioning and I have to cycle its power. The USB port, however, that
the KVM was attached to is disabled by the system and the only way I can
get keyboard and mouse access again is to restart the system (or change
the USB port that the KVM is plugged into - which is just as
inconvenient as shutting down the system). I think that the problem is
with the KVM, but until I can get a new one, I wanted to see if I could
reset the USB controls on the system to reactivate that USB port when
this happens. Any ideas?
