Linux Mint 18.2 xfce 64-bit (VMWare host) / Windows 8.1 Pro 32-bit (VMWare guest)

I have had USB fail on two computers in the past 10 years. This caused the keyboard and mouse to quit working. Fortunately both computers had PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports, so I scrounged up a PS/2 keyboard and mouse, powered down, plugged them in, and powered up. The PS/2 keyboard and mouse worked perfectly.

In both cases, having a working keyboard and mouse allowed me to easily troubleshoot and fix the USB problem. I didn't have a good backup in either case, so I would have had a serious problem had I not had PS/2 ports on the computers.

If by chance your computer has a PCI slot (it might, because it is "older"), you could get something like this to add PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports:

I have heard that gamers prefer PS/2 keyboards, because there is less latency with them than with USB keyboards.

Causing me to unplug it and plug it back in again. It happens mostly when it's been idle for some time. I'm guessing it's something to do with the power management? Also maybe a recent update has upset some setting or something... Got a list of Vaio updates to attend to but I'm not sure if I...

This is my first Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and although it looks as though it was designed by an art student, you are totally fudged if you are left handed because Logitech decided, the entire world are right handed. It is a well designed keyboard and mouse that cups your hand like a well...
