I have a Compaq Presario CQ62 running Fedora 19 (Xfce). Every few minutes the keyboard and mouse stops responding properly.

When the glitch occurs, the mouse can still be moved, and can drag windows, but will not allow a single click. Also, when typing the keyboard will not allow me to type, but instead keeps opening up the shortcuts - for example, instead of typing the letter "f" it will open the "file" menu.

The only way I can fix this problem is to close the laptop, open it up, select "new login", and log back in. For some reason, logging in seems to reset the laptop, at least until the glitch occurs again.

Any ideas?

Can you check if you have a stuck alt key?
