So, about a week ago. I woke up my PC from it's usual sleep mode, only to find that the keyboard and mouse were disconnected and turned off. The only way I managed to fix this was by physically disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard and mouse from the USB ports.
It's happened a few times since then, and just today the same thing happened, but now even disconnecting and reconnecting didn't work. I had to push the reset button on my PC, which forced a full shutdown and reboot. Then they worked
What could cause this? A virus? Faulty hardware (doubt it)? My PC finally beginning to give in after 5+ years of being on minimum 6 hours a day with lots of sleep mode ? (Just wondering, since my PC has been acting weirdly and more slowly recently)
