Problem with PTT

I am running WSJT-X on a Windows 7 laptop. Using a West Mountain Nomic and FT 817. I am not using the CAT control. For some reason, every now and then, the PTT switches to transmit only to return to receive a second later. It did fine last night, but acted up yesterday morning. I have used different USB port and they all act stupid at times. At first I thought it might be RF so I put as much separation as I could between laptop and antenna. Then I thought it might be overheating so I elevated laptop to provide better cooling. I even tried WSPR version 2 and it would do it at times. I uninstalled drivers on USB and reinstalled. It's frustrating to work fine for several hours then act up. Any help is appreciated!
