Bug Description

On a Lenovo E47G in DC mode, although the "put computer into sleep after idle for certain time" is set, some invalid key event may be generated time to time to prevent the system go into sleep mode after it's left idle for a long time.

From: Ike Panhc <email address hidden>

BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1029834

Otherwise will generate KEY_UNKNOWN on un-listed vpc event,
which means nothing and is hard for user to report the detail
of the event.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel for Precise in -proposed solves the problem (3.2.0-30.47). Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-precise' to 'verification-done-precise'.

If verification is not done by one week from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

Jesse, could you please test the -proposed kernel, as per comment #3? Thanks.

Will do the test on next Monday. Thank you. :)
