Default Laptop Keyboard/Mouse problem

I recently purchased a Lenovo Thinkpad T60P notebook and installed a fresh copy of Windows XP on it, as well as Debian Etch.

Ever since I did that, sometimes when I boot up the computer my keyboard and/or mouse fail to work. However, I never get this problem when running linux.

It doesn't happen very often, but when it does it takes a good three to four reboots before everything is in order.

Does it have something to do with me not booting my hard drive in AHCI mode because I am unable to boot windows when I change it to compatability in my BIOS.

Any recommendations?
