I am using Fedora 20 on my HP EliteBook 2540p and since the kernel version 3.16.4 and higher, it is impossible to do a keyboard input after open my laptop (First working with no problems, then I close the laptop (standby/engergy savig mode, after a while open the laptop and keyboard is not working)). The mouse is working with no Problems. After a reboot there is no problem

Thank you for helping me!

Do you still have an older kernel available that you can select on boot-up? If so, see if the problem goes away by switching to the older kernel. If it does, the issue is a regression in the newer kernel and you should file a bug at including the output of su -c 'lshw' in the report so that the kernel engineers can figure out what broke.
