Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 131794
Keyboard hangs after system is not in use for a time
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:09:28 EST
Keyboard hangs in both console and graphic mode.
Upon leaving the system for a while the keyboard does not respond.
The mouse works, and other components are still functioning. Still
able to SSH into the system to view logs etc. but cannot do anything
to revive keyboard.
Sometimes by closing the terminal window (using mouse) and/or pressing
a number of keys results in this message:
kernelL input AT Translated Set 2 keyboard on isa0060/serio0
and system responds again. Other times on console window a messageL
atkbd.c -> keyboard on isa 0060/serio0 reports too many keys pressed
and system fully hangs.
Changing the keyboard does not clear the problem.
System used: Asus P4 SiS board with Celeron 2.4G, 256Mb RAM, Fedora
Core 2 with 18.104.22.168 / 2.6.5 (fails on both)
System did not have a problem with the following OS:
Fedora Core 1
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
