When you launch GearBox or POD Farm in Standalone with a KB37 connected, the application will transfer default device priority to the KB37 device.
However, you can set your operating system to use the KB37 as the Default audio device in the audio settings control panel of your OS. Doing so will make the KB37 your system "soundcard" all the time, provided that it's connected.
The Windows 7 Control Panel Audio settings page is where you set the Default Output (or even Input, if you wish) to whatever available devices your system sees. Normally it's set to the built-in soundcard.

Thanks Perry, I think that's the right track but that's not exactly it. I'd already set the KB37 as default, and also tried disabling the other sound devices as a troubleshooting step. Plus the KB37 is the only ASIO device on the system recognized by Sonar.

It could be something with the driver behavior on Windows 7 with your particular installation/hardware host, or possibly the driver installed to this particular USB port in question.
Without any real concrete explanation for the actual root cause just yet, I can't really tell you in good confidence to "trade" laptops.
There is no actual configuration setting that will be able to change this behavior. Did you try a different USB port other than the one you were testing with prior to writing back? Can you try all direct USB ports with your KB37 and see if the behavior changes with any of them tested? Let us know.
