many thanks guys- I am new to saitek hardware-I too had  the yoke and the throttle freezing.

i decide to plug them directly into the mother board usb port and luckily all is ok.

I gave up with the trim wheel after hours of frustration- my advice, forget it and buy Goflight trim wheel (GF-LGTII), simply a joy to use, and so much more besides a trim wheel.

Goflight trim wheel (GF-LGTII)

 

Gf trim wheel is just too small.. might as well use elec trim. Its like turning a quarter. They need to make it larger closer to the real thing.

Search Google for Saitek USB and Windows Advanced Power Management.  There are easy to apply fixes that will likely cure the issue described.  There are several topics in the joysticks and controllers forum here on Avsim.

Read this topic from start to finish and see if the fixes there help.  Its not Windows 10 specific.  I had the drop out problem With Saitek devices with Windows 7.  Tried powered USB hubs, Saitek external power supply for my yoke, etc. None fixed the issues. The fixes to Windows Advanced Power Management eliminated the drop outs.  Now a happy camper.

Manny, I agree with you that GoFlight could improve on the trim, but unless simmers spend mega £'s on electric trim wheels, and have the space for it, we have to make do with what we can afford.
