1) Turn HP 2710p tablet PC to slate mode
(1i) Rotate screen with XRandR) - probably not necessary step,
keyboard shuts down with non-rotated screen too
2) Wait one minute
3) Open the lid and try to type anything on the keyboard
(keyboard doesn't work)

Workarounds to get keyboard working:

- Wait one minute with lid open and don't press any key during waiting,
otherwise you should wait one more minute after last pressure
(sometimes doesn't help)
- Toggle different screen orientations with XRandR until keyboard activates
(via virtual keyboard or icons, which call appropriate commands)
sometimes I manage to do it in less than one minute.

I can reproduce this bug _almost_ every time when I switch to slate mode.
But sometimes keyboard works just fine immediately after opening the lid.
The same bug was noticed in openSUSE 11.0 too.
Laptop also has Windows Vista installed: no similar problem was noticed.
