Occasionally, Mint 14 locks up for 30 seconds or more before the keyboard is again live. The last instance was creating a new topic in this forum under networking. I had just typed in the subject and hit the tab key to enter the body of the topic. The cursor moved to the body window and the keyword was no longer active.
The mouse could move, open a terminal window (but I could not type in it), close the window, activate the menu, etc. But, it was over 30 seconds before the keyboard was again live. Surely others have seen this. What is the issue and how can I fix this. We are going to be using Mint as a server and cannot afford for it to take time off to "think" about things.
