I am experiencing the exact same problem. I have the G19 about 10 days now and every 2-3 hours it will go dead on me.
The day before yesterday I actualy got the BSOD and after I rebooted my system, I noticed that most applets were gone, except for Windows Side Show monochrome & color plus my Xfire applet. Since that reboot I never had an issue again, could it be one of the applets (which were deleted) maybe?

It looks like the Logitech LCD Movie Viewer causes such reboots here. I am not finished with my tests, but i have the strong feeling that everything works fine as long as this Applet is not loaded.
Once it has been loaded, i can deactivate it but if it's still running in the background, the LCD may crash. (Yes, i know i could kill it with the Task Manager...).
I will continue my tests until i am 100% sure...

I'm having keyboard issue's aswell with my device but the happen very rarly.
I know that my mobile phone makes my keyboard go nuts 'n all when it receives and incomming call/message. (A post about it)
But now that I've kept my mobile phone clear from my keyboard I'm still experiencing keyboard issue's, I've all so removed all devices attached to the USB hub of the keyboard it self and attached the keyboard to an USB hub he doesn't have to share with other devices.
But still the device reboots and works normally again or the device turns off and I'm force to unplug and reconnect the device and the last one happens the most often.
I've read that people blame the AC adapter or certain applets. I've no applets or any keyboard software running at the moment and I've still seen the problem happening, so I don't believe the problem lies with in the software it self.
The keyboard label read 5Volts and 2.2 Amps, the AC adapter reads 5Volts and 2.4 Amps... So it should be good for this device. The AC adapter isn't hot or any thing after a full day of working.
I've tested the load and the voltage drops a bit, about 5% loss in voltage when its working at the max keyboard load of 2.2 Amps. This 5% loss should not be a problem. I'm not gonna try and overload it, for I don't know if this AC adapter will burn out on me or has a build in overload protection and I prefer to keep my warranty
I'm considering going to the radioshop and getting a plug identical to the logitech AC adapter and attach it to an old ac adapter that is good for 5Volts and 3.2 Amps. Should the keyboard be consuming more then indicated, then it should keep on working on the other AC adapter. But I'm gonna wait and see if Logitech Techsupport has any thing to add before I try this.
