Hi ,
I am facing a strange but critical issue.
I have a FreeBSD 6.2 server ,this server runs on PE2850 with 4G ram
and Dual Xeon's . Every once in a while the server will just hang , no
network connectivity or anything else. if i plugin a USB keyboard ,
the server will come back to life as if nothing happend. the server
works fine and with out a problem until next time.
I tried diabeling ACPI but that did not change a thing.

I have enbaled all *.* to all.log and been digging through logs to
find a solution with no luck.

at this point I am open to ANY suggestion .

my dmesg output after keyboard inserted :
ukbd0: DELL DELL USB Keyboard, rev 1.10/1.05, addr 2, iclass 3/1
