Is it a USB KVM?  I had a similar experience with my Dell E521 using a  
USB keyboard and mouse.  It is fairly well documented in the threads I  
started on the forums linked from my article here:

Now I wasn't using a KVM but I found unplugging the keyboard and  
plugging it back in would reset things for a while.

It finally settled down after a BIOS update to the machine, but it  
resurfaced after a ubuntu upgrade.  I found after much further  
research that the Logitech mouse I was using was old as in USB 1.0  
old.  And was the source of the issues.  I bought a new mouse and  
never looked back.
