I'm commenting instead of answering, because this isn't so much an answer as it is clarification. I've experienced the same thing with some third party plugins, specifically my Waves API bundle. They work, but I have to turn them off and then on first. I haven't experienced this with any other third party plugins however. What plugins are you running into trouble with?

    As for the Max For Live devices, I know that sometimes a patch can get "congested" so to speak (depending on the object) and sometimes I've had to reload a patch or send through a bang to get things working correctly. Having to do that upon every load doesn't sound normal however. Is it with more than one patch?
