Default FC13 PS2 Mouse/Keyboard stops working after a while


I've seem problems like this reported in various forums. I have a i7

the keyboard and mouse fails. The system keeps running, X updates, I can
ssh into the machine and if I plug in a USB mouse that works.

I have found that if I put the system into suspend or hibernate prior to
the failure then on return from hibernate or suspend the PS2
mouse/keyboard work for long periods as normal.

Any ideas?
