jerk_shop is correct, the GCS632U does get the power it needs to function from the USB ports of the computers it is attached to. Make sure the USB portion of the KVM cable is plugged directly into a computer without the use of any USB to PS/2 adapters. You will also want to make sure that at least one computer is turned in order for this KVM to function.

GCS632U is designed to work with standard USB keyboard an mouse only. You have to make sure that you are not using any type of adapter such as PS/2 to USB adapter. To further isolate the problem, please follow the steps below:
1. Connect the USB keybord directly to th computer to make sure that the keyboard is working properly.
2. Make sure that the keyboard is connected to the keyboard port on your KVM switch. You may take a look under neath this GCS632U (near the USB ports) and you will see an icon where to connect the keyboar and mouse.
3. If you're still gettings the same problem, Try power cycling this kvm switch by disconnecting if from the computers and disconnect also the keyboard and mouse from the KVM switch and leave them disconnected for a minute or two.
4. Reconnect everything after two minutes and then reboot the two computers.
5. If same problem exist, try using different USB keyboard.
NOTE: This KVM swith does not work correctly with wireless, gaming and smart keyboards because it's designed to work with standrd USB keyboard only.

SOURCE: KVM will only switch one way
Please make sure that the keyboard is hooked up on the KB port of the KVM. check underneath the GCS632U for the correct console port. you will see a keyboard and mouse icon. Make sure that the keyboard is connected to the keyboard port. tap scroll lock key twice to switch between computers.

As a wild guess, it sounds like a static discharge MIGHT be affecting the switcher causing it to crash.
Try increasing your humidity to 40% and grounding yourself before touching the keyboard... This is the season for these static electricity problems... get nipped all the time and you MAY not even feel it to be enough to zap the switch.
