Annoying problems, fast workarounds

Last months I’ve been facing a weird Xorg problem: eventually the keyboard and mouse hangs.

The only thing I know is that a simple VT switch solves the problem. I was getting used to ssh my pc from another one and do a “chvt 1; chvt 7”, but yesterday Claudio suggested me to map one acpi event to do that, and it worked.

Now, when I lose the keyboard and mouse control, all I need to do is unplug the ac cable (it is a laptop) and plug it again.
