I have a strange error.

When I put my computer to Suspension and turn it on, I can't fill in my password with my bluetooth keyboard.

Instead, I must click on "switch users", THEN in the menu, the keyboard starts working again, and I can log in.

I have this problem also, but my bluetooth keyboard stops working altogether after suspension. Weirdly I can still unpair/pair the keyboard. I have to restart the computer to have it working again. –  Crimbo Mar 13 '13 at 18:12
I am wrong, if I do not click 'switch users' and I use my laptop keyboard, then my bluetooth keyboard stops working altogether. So your 'switch users' technique seems to be a temporary solution. Which model keyboard are you using? –  Crimbo Mar 13 '13 at 18:21
