Keyboard is not returned to initial state when coming from suspend

Description of problem:
(This is a DELL L400 laptop)
When I close the lid on my laptop the computer is suspended to RAM.
Before it got suspended the keyboard worked fine,
i.e. when pressing and holding a key it gets repeated: sssssssssssss <- pressing
and holding s once.
When the laptop returns from suspend the key doesn't repeat: s <- pressing and
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Close the lid and the computer suspends to RAM
2.Open the lid and the keyboard is not correctly restored
Actual Results: The key is pressed but not repeated after a suspend.
Expected Results: The key that is pressed and hold down should be repeated as
it was before the suspend.
The same goes for the mouse...
I can double-click on a windowlist to shade it.
BUT I can not double-click and drag the window as I could before I suspended the
Hmm, this is strange.
If I log out of gnome and type into the user/passwd field in gdm the keys are
repeated. But directly when I have logged into gnome it doesn't work again (only
the first time I log into Gnome before a suspend it works).
Seems to me this might be a Gnome bug?

I have similar problem. My machine is a desktop. Before using Redhat7.3/8.0,
it worked OK on RH7.2
My machine BIOS power-saving option is to suspend after 15 minutes of idle.
After I disabled this suspension option, the keyboard problem disappeared.
In latest phoebe this is no longer the case.
I reported this initially.
So, relax :) Now it works!
