Phew, I thought I was the only one and it's been driving me crazy ;)

Laptop is a Toshiba Tecra 8200.

I don't seem to have it every time I put it to sleep, if I did then I would have
gone crazy already.

Any suggestions on what to do here ? I didn't have this with any previous
version of Red Hat (7.1-7.3)
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-10-18 18:39:35 EDT
APM related problems are almost always due to buggy BIOS's and other
hardware specific weird crap.  The kernel sometimes works around these
hardware issues.  Perhaps something fell out of the kernel that was
working before.

CC'ing our kernel maintainer for comment.
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2002-10-18 18:42:31 EDT
What CPU are you using?  What specific kernel arch is installed and

Is this an Athlon?
Comment 4 Justin Albstmeijer 2002-10-19 13:10:22 EDT
No this is a pentium III 800Mhz running a i686 kernel.

I'll will test monday if the mouse/keyboard behaviour restores after a X 

Additional info:

- Non of the previous 7.x versions have had this problem.
- In the graphical installation mode I already experienced strange 
mouse/keyboard behaviour. I had to install in text mode.. sometimes I was not 
able to activate an input field.

Same problem with Dell Inspiron 4150 after upgrade to redhat 8.0. Redhat 7.3
worked but kbdrate went down to default after resume. This is a bug in rh 8.0.
Both were running same kernel.

This seems to be duplicate to bug #72151. I think this is gnome2 bug and not
Xfree bbug at all. After unsuspend "xset r on" fixes it. But question is. Who
disables repeat?
