X120e keyboard periphery unresponsive

After startup or waking up my ThinkPad, some peripheral keys (e.g., tab, capslock, esc, #'s, backspace, some letters) are unresponsive. There is no error message of any kind and it seems to happen randomly. It also seems that after a "warm up" period of undetermined length, they start working again. I've tried restarting, but that doesn't resolve the problem. I should also mention that this was happening a little over a year ago and spontaneously resolved itself. This second round began a few days ago. Thoughts?


Thanks in advance!

Re: X120e keyboard periphery unresponsive



Do you have the latest BIOS installed on the X120e?  Also, do you mean this occurs on both a cold boot and when the computer resumes from sleep or from hibernation?
