Actually it seems to be even worse on my Desktop. My USB powered keyboard has to be powered down and then on again before starting Cubase to get it to work. Leaving it on doesn’t seem to work any more than switching it on after launching Cubase.
No issues with controllers with their own PSUs.
I must say I’d previously it was the USB connection rather than the power that was the issue as my units with their own PSUs are connected via real MIDI cables and a MIDI interface.

I guess this issue didn’t cross the developers’ minds.
Honestly, is this a trivial issue?
I can get that many users have their keyboards always powered up and plugged in, or that they’re always considerate before starting up Cubase, but I think this is an issue worth fixing
+1. A “refresh” functionality would be great. I had the very same problem, and found a workaround by going from master keyboard to soundcard via a midi cable, no more direct usb (it’s not a usb powered keyboard). Now it works.
