Cooler Master Masterkeys Pro M LED issue

Hi people, I've just bought a couple of days ago a CM Masterkeys PRO M, after using Corsair for years from (K95, K70 RGB, Strafe and K65 LUX RGB), I'm tired of them, allways more sooner than later I had an issue with the LEDs mainly (I nowadays have the K65 in RMA after three months of use).

So I decide to try a more simple keyboard, I don't really need RGB and I'm startting to think that the RGB capability and conflicted software (iCUE or whatever) is what makes Corsair keyboards having trouble at some point. So far I'm loving this CM keyboard, just white LED, but a lot more bright than any Corsair I've used and happy to be managed only by hardware and no software needed.

...YET! yesterday, I had an issue, while watching a movie I've noticed that for a couple of times for a milisecond the leds went out, it's just an instance when leds just stop and return almost instantly, only noticeable if you were watching the keyboard at that instant. Anyone had this issue? could have been the micro usb cable or my USB port?...I'm really liking this keyboard.

Today I took it to the store were I've boght it and changed the one with the issue for a new one (this time with blue switches) and I'm having the same issue again...could it be my PC? like I said before anyone with the same issue? Thanks in advance!

I've got the CoolerMaster MasterKeys Pro S with the white LED backlight and it doesn't turn off unless I turn it off myself... If it does it on the second board then it sounds like an issue with the USB ports on your PC.
