Perhaps its not designed to wake up from sleep. Open up the Device Manager and select each of the USB Controllers. Check the Properties, Power Management tab and see if it allows you to Checkmark the box that says "Allow this device to wake up the computer". If you cannot Checkmark the box then its not designed to wake up the computer. Generally only keyboard and mouse related devices are designed to wake up the computer, so you'll have to use one of them.

What does the Device Manager say about the keyboard and mouse? Does it properly identify them as an HID Compliant Device or Mouse; what are the Power Management options for those since the "Allow this device to wake the computer" should definitely work for those. Or do you mean than you can wake up before connecting some other device via usb but can't wake up after? What are these usb devices you are connecting that cause this problem? Are they drawing a large amount of power from the usb ports?

As far as connecting usb devices for charging, its a computer, not a power station. It sounds like you're overloading the usb system connecting and trying to charge too many things. So charge your usb devices with an appropriate charger approved by the device's manufacturer. How about not putting the computer to sleep; you can just set the Power Options to turn the monitor off and leave the computer alone.

the charging device was a gamepad, this problem happen only with game devices like gamepads or usb ps2 guitar
