Is that the same 5V supply that feeds your switch?

If you put a voltmeter across the 5V supply and its 0V (when PP cable connected to the computer) and press the switch does the voltage drop away?

Well afraid I have no idea, it certainly seems like when you have the PP connected it is not allowing your 5v signal to the fault line of the Gecko but as you have said you dont have the fault line connected to the computer then I am at a loss how this could be.
