G'day I have a asus P7P55D mb i5-750 cpu. Installed LM8 64bit. The generic kernel would not allow me to use a 3g usb broadband, so had to install my own kernel. I tried two so far, both have the same bug (never happened whilst using the generic kernel, but didn't use it long).
I downloaded the ppa 2.6.32-020632-generic_2.6.32-020632_amd64.deb , but the headers would Not install, so using the same config from it, compiled and installed kernel18.104.22.168.
The mouse and keyboard freeze randomly (in both kernels), At the login window, whilst in nautilus browsing, whilst using synaptic, nothing to do with individual apps. Note, several times the mouse jittered and pasted new folders on the desktop. Several times mouse was near an entry box, and flooded the box with a single character, 7 in one case, h in another. The only way to get out of the freeze is to power off.
I do note, any app running is still functioning, xchat whatever. You just can't type or move the mouse. Nothing at all is on the tail of /var/log/messages (last thing there was the 3g mount). No glaring cpu usage , nothing in top to indicate anything of real note, but have seen that xorg is always near the top when it's happening, though no extra cpu or ram used.
this happens with or without my Nvidia 190 driver installed , with or without full upgrades installed as of Dec 19th. It can happen 30 seconds into a session, and the longest I've had is 2hrs 4mins , that was with full upgrade and Nvidia installed.
Done some reading on the ubuntu forums, and so far found some wifi cards causes this issue, I don't have one, so it can't be that. (my card is sitting in the draw waiting till I sort this issue out as it causes problems in my main OS mint 7 32bit).

Don't miss the donut by looking through the hole.
