Did you test it without the screensaver enabled?
Can you ALT-F2 switch to the second (e.g.) console?
I've seen the keyboard freezing one time with a 2.x kernel
on my ASUS SP3G board. But it didn't happen again yet.
At that time I had vidcontrol yellow blue in my /etc/rc.local
Don't know if its important though.
