Go into device manager and find the USB root hubs down at the bottom and then right-click them, go to the power management tab and uncheck the box that lets it shut down the port to save power.
Did that already. Should've mentioned it in my original post.
I had the motherboard replaced in the T60 yesterday (don't think I'll be buying any more Lenovo products, but that's another story). I haven't tried my BB with it since, but I'll post my results when I do.
