I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 x64. It's running on my Dell Vostro V13. Everything works great until I shut the lid of my laptop (puts laptop into sleep). Once I come back and resume working in Ubuntu, typing becomes a chore. Ubuntu misses a lot of the keypresses from my keyboard. It usually results in me mashing my keyboard until the letter appears. A full system reboot fixes the problem. Again, typing is never an issue unless I resume from sleep. Any ideas?
Upgrading to 12.10 seems to solve the problem.
For 12.04 and below:
As a temporary fix you can use/try this solution:
I saw it here: Touchpad stops working after suspend on a Clevo M55N and it worked for me!
Now on ubuntu 12.04, I am still using the temporary fix i found and posted earlier and it works. But when i created a script that runs the two commands - it didn't work! i noticed i had to add "sleep 2" between the commands for the script fix to function.
