    I have a KVM switch plugged into one of the USB ports on the back of th
    box. The KVM does not have AC Power, it pulls power from USB port. Whe
    I power on the PC, the KVM switch does not work. Not lights on it. Whe
    I remove/reinsert the USB plug, then it lights up and works.

    Is there a way to adjust the power settings of my USB ports so they ar
    alway On and so then the KVM switch will work

    Nope.

    But you could probably stick a powered USB hub in the mix and solve your
    problem.

    Or buy a powered KVM switch. Or see if there is an option to add power
    to the existing one.
