This almost sounds like the display setting on your laptop was changed to an external device. Most laptops are designed to be hooked up to an external display, such as a monitor or projector, specifically for presentations. You can alternate the display options in the following ways:
Check your laptop display settings and make sure that it's not in presentation mode (options 2-4) before connecting the KVM switch to it. It may be recognizing the KVM switch as an external display in option 4 mode.
If you are using a docking station with laptop try directly connecting the KVM cable to the laptop. Also try swapping the cables between the two computers to see if you have a problem with a bad KVM cable. If you have a bad KVM IOGear has a three year warranty on their KVMs and you should be able to contact them to get a replacement.
The GCS632U does not have any form of display emulation which may cause video problems if the boot up is not done right. What IOGear recommends is when booting up a computer the KVM should stay on that computer until it comes to a desktop. What this does is it allow the KVM to pass the EDID information from the monitor to computer and that should help.
I've gone through alot of KVM switches. Something in the electronics just gives up. If your keyboard and mouse are the pci type (round connector) then don't switch their locations while the computers are on. Windows won't see the change and you may damage the system. If thy're USB type then switching is OK.

1). new pc's usually come with baisc softwares so it is neat and tidy. when you took it home, you probably added a lot of other softwares, which will use up a lot of pc resources, namely Hard Drive, memory, data buses etc.....
this is one of the reasons it gets slower.
2). newly added softwares, bought or downloaded, if not originals, may contain virus. this is 2nd reason for being slow.
3).anti virus softwares also take up memory and speed, especially when it's running obviously or behind.
4). suggestion - after you clean up you machine by re-installing operating system OS (such as windows or linux etc.), make an image of the partition of the hard drive. when you feel pc slows down, bring back the image to overwrite the contaminated partiton. you can find some softwares named "ghost". that's it.
5). depending how big is your hard drive, make partitions. "C" for OS and drivers and simple programs only, "D", for example, for all other stuffs if you do not have other partitions. size of partition "C" should have 2G-10G and is very much depending on how many softwares you will install and how big your hard drive is.
I have had the same problem off and on since I bought my Iogear 2-port kvm switch over a year ago. I have a DYNEX wired, multimedia, usb keyboard and a Dynex wired usb mouse. The operating system on my desktop is Windows XP, SP3 and on my laptop it's Windows XP professional.
Yesterday, my keyboard "died" on me about 8 times and each time it requires unplugging the keyboard usb cable from the switch and my laptop, rebooting, then plugging the usbs back in. Really, really frustrating and annoying. I'm not a techno guru, but I got to thinking that maybe the keyboard driver might be the culprit. I decided to go to Control Panel, clicked on Keyboard, then Hardware/Properties/Driver/Update Driver. I clicked on "update driver" and let it find one automatically. It took what seemed like a long time for it to find the driver but it found one. The device name changed to KeyMaestro P2360, the driver updated, and I noticed 2 additional files were added to the System 32 directory.
It's only been a day but so far so good. My keyboard hasn't failed yet since the keyboard driver update. I don't know if this is the solution for you or not, but it seems to be the one for me. I'll know for sure if I can through a few days without it failing again.
