Keyb and mouse delay at startup

Hello,

When I boot and the Windows 7 desktop appears I can't use my keyboard and mouse for about 5 seconds. As a matter of fact none of my USB-connected periphals are available at that point.

I have to note that it's my first system with a lightning fast SSD. Booting Windows to the desktop takes only 10 seconds. Maybe it's just too fast for everything to initialize?

Anyway, it's slightly annoying and I wonder if anything can be done about it.

Keyboard: standard USB Logitech keyboard
Mouse: Steelseries Xai USB
Motherboard: Asus P8Z68-V Pro Gen3

USB initialization is a part of the windows boot process so they should be up and running before there is any log-in window.
Possibilities:
1) bad/wierd USB device? Unplug all usb devices except for the keyboard and mouse, or even try a different keyboard and mouse, and see if that solves the issue.

2) bad controller? try switching the keys and mouse to a different pair of USB ports. Each pair next to each other (left-right on a tower, top-bottom on a desktop) is on a different USB controller, so try them on a different pair.

3) lost drivers? Check your event log to see if it is re-installing the drivers for them every time you boot. Granted with an SSD the process would be nearly immediate (on my wife's SSD most items are ready to use before I can move my hand from the plug to the device).

4) Reset the BIOS/UEFI? have you tried doing a reset on the switch/jumper, and then go into UEFI and load the optimized settings? Is USB set to OS control in the UEFI?

Alright, I've done some more thorough testing and I could narrow it down to my Steelseries Xai mouse. When it's connected it delays initialization of all connected USB-devices. When I disconnect it or connect another mouse there's no issue at all.

Let's head to Steelseries support...
