keyboard strokes registered repeatedly or not registered at all
This bug is posted as a dapper bug and is reported to have been fixed. However I have made a fresh install of Edgy Beta 1 on an Acer Aspire 3620 and the bug is there. I have tried to do all of the proposed from the comments of bug #39315, but to no avail.
Without any systematic behaviour, totally on random time, my laptop keyboard starts to behave oddly. The keypresses never get registered by the system or some key is registered as continuously pressed and starts without control to repeat itself like crazy. Like the key is stuck, and it can't be stopped by pressing it.
I have noticed that the continuous press or the lack or response from the keys can be ignored somehow if i move the cursor through the touchpad of the laptop. While I use the touchpad with one hand I can use the keyboard normally with the other.
This behaviour of the keyboard will somehow stop after a few minutes (not a specific time interval, everytime it's different) and then I can use it normally again.
