Super-key Lock in Fedora 24/25

When switching workspaces via the (laptop) keyboard shortcuts:

  • Super + PgDn (Super + Fn + Arrow Down)
  • Super + PgUp (Super + Fn + Arrow Up)

The 'Super' key seems to lock/remain in a perpetual "ON" state. This results in all keys acting as if they are being pressed in tandem with the 'Super' key (e.g. typing 'a' brings up the Applications dash, left mouse/trackpad click will move a window, etc.). The only way to exit out of this seems to be to depress the 'Fn' and 'Super' keys together multiple times.

Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, have they discovered a solution?

Thank you

There also seems to be a sporadic issue with the 'Ctrl' key acting as if it's being pressed in conjunction with the 'Tab' key, and locking in this state.

Has anyone else experienced this, these issues, and if so, have they discovered a solution?
