Unfortunately this sounds like your USB port is starting to fail, what is happening is the USB ports solder is starting to crack, and the port becomes loose, which then severs the connection, with you moving the USB cable in a certain way, creates pressure on the USB port and re-establishes this connection.

Your beats pill would need to be taken apart, and a new USB port would need to be soldered on. :-)
