It wouldn't explain those events at all. It's only a config change intended to prevent communication drop outs for USB devices and hubs. I would look in the windows event logs during the times you know there's a gap in the logs and see what was going on with the system.

I made the USB power management change suggested. I could see how this might create an issue with the connection between the control box and the computer, but I don’t see how this could explain the almost 3 minute gap in both the APCC and SGP log files.
