This is on my AMD comp. My keyboard will stop funtioning at various times. Usually after the comp comes out of a screensaver. The keyboard is set to "use this to wake the comp up" setting. Hibernate and monitor shut off are disabled, and the screensaver is set at 30 minutes.
I have used two keyboards, one was a USB viewsonic, the other a PS/2 GE. They both do the same thing.
I recently did a full reinstall of XP Home with SP2 and all updates. It's a Gigabyte GA series mobo with a XP 2400 proc, unknown DDR, and a FX5200 vid card.
One weird thing, when I hit the scroll lock key, the lights light up on the keyboard, so I know it still has power, but when I let off the scroll lock key, all the lights go dead again (Fkey lock, Num lock, and Caps lock).
Any settings I should try? I have no idea where to start beside input devices, and I couldn't find anything out of the ordinary.
