It is directly connected to the motherboard. Its going into an 1112 USB port. I do not have any splitters between the NoPro and the MB. Can it be a bad port if one time it works and the next it doesn't? Is this the right port to plug this into?
Any internal USB 2.0 header should work.

I'd have to try having it connected to the I/O for a couple of days to see.
Yes, exactly. Just one time won't tell the tale as it's been inconsistent.

That seemed to have worse results. The lights just were not turning on at all after a restart when I did that. I flipped them back so that the NoPro was closer to the PS and the lights turned on as they did before. Do you think I should have a dedicated SATA power cable just for the NoPro?
No and I don't think that it matters where it is on the line.

Either by pressing and holding the reset button on the NoPro or just unplug and replug the mini USB going into the NoPro and the sata cable connecting to the power supply cable. I really don't like doing this because I have to take the back panel of my case off every time.
Right. This, however, further highlights that it's an initialization issue.

Possibly but doubtful. Did you also disable Windows Fast Startup (as well as Fast Boot in the BIOS)?

I get that it's frustrating. I'd be pretty frustrated to. Right now, I'd suspect that it's some mysterious, obscure setting in the BIOS somewhere. It's not getting the initial "Get started" signal on boot.
