FTDI (Future Technology Devices International), manufacturer of the USB
chip used in all microHAM products, have a buggy hardware driver.  That
driver is causing the USB port to shut down at inappropriate times.

The information has been distributed on the microHAM Yahoo list:

In essence, one can uninstall Router 8.0.7 and revert to Router 7.7.1
or can completely disable all power saving features (Sleep, etc.) in

The next release of Router will return to the backlevel version of the
FTDI drivers (ftd2xx.dll).

I have also noticed that the program has been doing some strange things with my Microham 2 keyer at key moments by causing the function keys to stop working correctly when trying to work a station. Rebooting the computer seemed to sort things out but isn't an ideal solution. I have assumed that this problem has arisen because of me having to run the program in demo mode as this hasn't happened before.
