[Bug 1291258] Re: [Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13] Stuck keys


Please, re-open this annoying bug. BIOS update is available only for
some regions/submodels of Yoga Lenovo! The bug is recurring after distro
upgrades and then gets fixed by some other updates coming after in 2-3
months. It means, the bug indeed could be fixed without BIOS update.

Now this bug is again here after upgrade to 16.04 LTS.

  [Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13] Stuck keys

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On the Lenovo Yoga 13 some keys, when being held down, are not
  released (e.g. pagedn, up arrow, etc.).  Once this happens, the mouse
  cursor also starts scrolling in some or other direction (it can be
  moved with the track-pad, but keeps moving in that direction).

  Using an external keyboard fixes the problem.

  At startup, the keyboard complains about unknown key events, but I
  silence those using

  sudo setkeycodes e03e 255
  sudo setkeycodes e060 255

  The behavior described here happens irrespective of whether these
  commands were executed.

  My temporary work-around is to put the machine to sleep; after wakeup
  the keyboard works fine again.
