Comment 6 for bug 1349128

This happens on my Dell XPS13 laptop. Here are the steps:

- Close the lid
- Wait a minute
- Open it back up

The login screen appears. The cursor is in the password area and is flashing. Nothing I type on the keyboard does anything.

- Click on anything in the top bar -- the battery indicator, or the gear icon, or the clock
- Hit escape or click on the password box again

Now it works.

- Type my password and log in

This part is interesting: the things I was typing when attempting to log in have been entered into the OS. In other words, if I had a browser window up, my password attempts are there in the address bar. So the things that I type on the login screen, when not accepted by the login screen, are actually being accepted by the underlying operating system.
