I want to try something with you. Open Device Manager and click View by connection. Trace down to the Alcatel. just above it on the tree (same branch) you should see a Root Hub. Double-click that Root Hub and explore it's properties. If there's a switch which allows Windows to shut down the Hub to preserve power, uncheck it. As a matter of fact, do this with *all* root hubs.
Let me know.
