  touchpad stopped working

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This is most probably a once-in-a-million-years bug, it has just
  happened now and I had never seen this before; but it's so huge that
  it must be investigated and fixed. Don't tell me you can't reproduce,
  I know that.

  At home I usually connect an external keyboard, mouse and screen to my
  laptop, using it as a desktop computer. Every once in a while I unplug
  everything and take the laptop to another room and keep using it,
  without suspending or shutting down.

  I just did that and the touchpad has stopped working. I have no mouse
  right now. Since I don't know how to access the system menu with the
  keyboard only (if that's possible at all), I will launch a terminal
  with Ctrl-Alt-T and restart the system by typing "reboot".
