no midi input from Akai MPK49

What am I doing wrong?

First: I do have it running, to controll GrandVJ with the AKAI but always when I fresh start GrandVJ and the Akai on teh Notebook I do not get Midiinpurt from teh controller (which I see from the MIDI/OSC "lamp").
After restarting Notebook, software and so on then somehow everything works.
Is there some kind of trick or something I do not we aware off?

btw. I have connected the AKAI only with USB; this did work but now Im not getting a connection anymore. Do I have to connect via Midi-interface?

---

I just found the following:
I go into preferences midi, clear all entries OK - enter all Midi entries again, then everything works-
Very strange, actually I do not knwo what to do if this happens during performance.
(still dont know how to save the Midi Maping in GrandVJ. When I save the mapping and load it again its just not there)

when starting the notebook with the AKAI with USB connected, then starting GrandVJ i NEVER have Midisignals coming into GrandVJ.
I always do what i just think can be done, swith on/off midi in GrandV, disconnet the keyboard, start grandVJ new and afetr about 5 minutes so far it do work suddenly.
thats a big problem for a preformence when you ner now how long it takes to get the keyboard connected to GrandVJ. Does nobody have this problem?
