Fedora-10/KDE losing keyboard connection

I notice that my Thinkpad T43 has started getting 
into a rather strange state every other day, or thereabouts,
where pressing keys seems to have no effect (even Ctrl-Alt-Del),
although the mouse still moves the cursor.

I was surprised to find the other day
that I could still contact the laptop from another machine,
and could even ssh into it, and re-boot it remotely.
(I should have looked to see what was going on, but forgot.)

I wonder if this is a common phenomenon,
and if so if there is any simple way of getting the machine 
out of this state?
(I suspect it may have something to do with suspend-to-RAM,
which started working brilliantly a month or so ago,
I think more or less when this phenomenon started.)
