[Bug 320173] Re: [jaunty] Mouse and keyboard stop responding


Emilio, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any
activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If
so, could you please test for this with the latest development release
of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder, but the one at the top) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

  [Acer Aspire 6930] Mouse and keyboard stop responding

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Randomly, the system stops responding to keyboard and mouse input.
  Both the mouse and the touchpad still move the pointer, but clicking
  does nothing. As regards the keyboard, it doesn't input anything on
  applications, nor hotkeys work. The system itself is responsive (for
  example, the network applet signal meter moves, the time applet
  changes as time passes, etc). Changing to terminals doesn't work
  either, but Sysrq does. I can restart the system through pressing the
  power button and waiting for the 60 seconds on the window that
  appears, or by using sysrq (Alt+Impr Pant+REISUB)

  I'm using an updated Ubuntu Jaunty, on an acer Aspire 6930 laptop. The
  touchpad is a synaptics one, and the mouse is a Microsoft Confort
  Optical Mouse 3000.

  (By the way, I didn't report using ubuntu-bug -p xorg as suggested, as
  it throws an error - I think I should fill in a bug report for that
