I have my SuSE 8.2 box and my girlfriend's Windoze XP system sharing a
single keyboard/viedo/mouse manual switch. Everytime I switch to Windows
and back again, the Linux mouse freaks out, as has been discussed
previously on this and other forums. The only work-around I've found for
this has been to hit ctrl-alt-F1 and ctl-alt-F7 to reset things.
Hmmm, looks like the same problem I had. A week ago I bought a monitor
switchbox, that switches keyboard and mouse too. If I turn the switch, the
keyboard locks up. If I switch slowly, i.e. I wait a few seconds at the point
that both pc's have no monitor&keyboard, there's no problem.
Hope this helps,
