Gentoo keyboard problem
Subject: Gentoo keyboard problem

Occasionally, and pretty randomly, my keyboard stops accepting input on a
dell inspiron 5100 laptop. It causes me to have to reboot through the
menus, and I have tried all kinds of stuff to change it, but no luck. When
it does this, as it reboots, i get a wierd colored screen, and i can see
some of the messages, but nothing about the problem. It also causes my
pcmcia wireless connection to freeze (or at least slow down considerably).
anyone else have any problems with something like this?

- I have tried all the various power management options in the kernel,
- Reconfigured X
- Tried to boot without PCMCIA card inserted, and then reinserted it after
boot.
The problem does not appear to happen with the regular NIC connection.

In the past, I had issues with a Dell Inspiron 8500 keyboard.  On this
model, near the power button at the top of the keyboard, there is a tiny
'button stick' that detects when the cover is closed.  One of the things
that periodically happens is that after closing the top, this button
thing sticks closed and I get no screen until I push down the keyboard
around the button.

This probably isn't your issue but maybe...

I don't think it is, since it happens after the keyboard has already been
working, I have tried it though, (pushing the kbd down near the power
button) ill post if it helps. thanks though.
