An idea, if you do not get it working. You say only hard rebooting the
machine gets it working again. This probably means that unplugging it
from both usb and power would also work. The first would reinitialize
the driver, but that might not be enough.
If you connect usb through a short cable with remote operable switch
and the same for the power, you would be able to remotely reset the
device. Something like that very possible is findable on internet and
definitely is not to difficult to make.
