I recently switched from Windows to Elementary OS and i have noticed several times that the keyboard as well as the touch pad stops working. If i restart my laptop, then everything seems to work fine for sometime but then again the same problem occurs. This never happened in Windows. Please help.

  • What computer do you have? We need more info about the hardware (touchpad and keyboard model) to help you. – Maccer Aug 4 '19 at 18:53

  • You could try to upgrade your kernel version and maybe that solves the issue. Here you have a guide with all the details you need to upgrade the kernel. – Maccer Aug 5 '19 at 16:35
  • This also happens to me, specially when come back from hibernation, some keys does not appear when I type, looks like the keyboard is broken, but than, in some minutes it gets back to work normally. Sometimes when this happens, if i keep pressing the key for a long time it shows the character. I have a thinkpad x240, OS 5 Juno – Marcel Kohls Sep 5 '19 at 15:17
