Bill, do you think you might be having problems with other installed audio interface drivers trying to take control of the audio stream? Might be worth a test to remove any audio drivers (except for the laptop sound card driver) and test...assuming others are installed.
Please forgive my ignorance but if interface X is not connected to the computer at the moment, why would/how could its driver be trying to take control of anything?

Perfectly possible. Ones I have seen: An old korg driver causing problems with other devices, also the mbox driver is notorious and another is the kmi string port driver which can mess with other devices.

Apparently some drivers load part way or grab hold of processes and this causes other drivers not to load correctly. Some M-audio drivers can cause issues like this as well as others.

Its worth checking out...you can always reload the drivers if removing them didn''t fix the problem.

Fantastic! Mad That's the driver I use for my interfaces. I've been suspecting that it and ASIO4ALL might not be playing nice. If I uninstall it, use a (cheap) Behringer class compliant interface wrapped in ASIO4ALL, and all works well, then the solution to my problem is, of course, the last one I want to do, i.e. throw money at the problem by buying a newer, more high end interface. I'll let you know...

Well I wouldn't get worked up about it yet...at least not until you confirm that THAT is the problem. If it is at least you know where to start looking. It might work better by uninstalling the offending driver, installing the driver for the new interface then re-installing the M-audio driver. Just changing the order in which the drivers load may help. Or if you can find the M-audio driver service try setting it to manual start if it isn't already.

I forget...which OS are you running? XP Pro had a neat feature called Hardware profiles. You could set up different ones and when the machine was booting you could select which profile to use. I don't know if they carried that over to Vista or later.
