[Bug 1358153] Re: Keyboard and touchpad randomly crash after boot


Sorry for not sending this apport information earlier, but I had to wait
for the bug to 'happen'. As I wrote in the title, it happens randomly.

But now, I figured out that it happens always if I wait enough. If I
wait for everything to load before logging in, then the keyboard and
touchpad freeze. If I quickly touch the touchpad or start to type just
after the login screen appears, then they won't crash.

I hope that it helps something.

  Keyboard and touchpad randomly crash after boot

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  After the OS boots, the keyboard and the touchpad crash and I cannot
  even type my password to log in.

  This bug is a quite old one, and present in multiple distributions, so
  I think it might be a kernel bug, but I am not sure.

  The OS itself doesn't freeze, I can use a mouse instead of the
  touchpad, and if I had an external USB keyboard, it would work also.

  One more thing: when this problem occurs, I cannot simply reboot or
  turn off the machine by selecting the appropriate option from the
  system menu, because this way the system hangs with a black screen. I
  can turn off only by pressing the power-off button.
