Hm I wonder if something like USB pass-through exists which allows me to disconnect upstream USB but keeps power to device connected ....

So using KVM switch one of my annoyance is, switching between two machines causes the keyboard to "disconnect" and "connect" but this means that my keyboard decides it wants to also reset the RGB lights 😭

@bshah split off the power lines in the keyboard cable to a usb power adapter πŸ˜…

@bshah that would mess with the USB state. I've seen KVMs that actually emulate a keyboard towards all computers instead of passing through the keyboard directly.
