I have ubuntu installed on my laptop and I use it with a keyboard and mouse usb. It all works fine, until it wakes up from suspend. Then the keyboard sometimes doesn't send the key I press. I have to press it sometimes until I get it on the screen. If I remove the usb and put it back, it works properly again. This just happens to the keyboard - the mouse keeps working fine.

Anybody knows why this happens?

Edit: My ubuntu version is 11.10. Keyboard Wise WSKB - 0003. Laptop Positivo Sim+. Obs: when waking up in windows 7 i don't have this problem.

MORE DETAILS: Which Ubuntu version? What brand/model of laptop and USB keyboard? –  david6 Dec 14 '11 at 23:13
The output of dmesg after you resume might help us, perhaps it's just taking a while to detect the keyboard? If you resume and wait for 30 seconds before trying to type, for instance, does the keyboard then work on the first keypress? –  Caesium Dec 16 '11 at 3:21
Sorry, that laptop broke. I'm afraid I can't test it anymore. The tv fell on the laptop :(. That is the reason I took so long to answer. Thanks for the help anyway. –  Jesse Jan 2 '12 at 17:36
