Computer Restart/shutdown causes USB cable to not be detected

Whenever I restart or shut down my computer and start it back up, the Oculus program says that the USB cable is not detected. So I have to unplug the cable and replug it back in. I'd like to keep the VR headset plugged in as the USB cables are not convenient to access on my PC. I've tried multiple USB ports and still get the same results. The VR works great after the workaround that I found, but I'd like to know if there's a way to permanently fix this so I don't have to unplug and replug the USB after each restart. Thank you.
