Description of problem:
After I resume from an apm suspend,
- I am not able to move a window with the mouse
- Keyboard repeats stops working
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. apm -s
2. (push resume button on laptop)
3. hold key in any x app

- Keyboard repeats does not work
Both mouse and keyboard should react like before the apm suspend
