mouse stops responding after being idle


When I am running krdc in full screen mode and leave my laptop idle for several minutes and then go back to it the mouse stops working. I can swtich to a login term and kill krdc, but when I switch back to X the mouse still doesn't work. I end up doing the old ctrl+alt+bksp. I am using krdc over vncviewer as I was having bad problems with fullscreen mode in it and the keyboard focus.

Env:
Thinkpad T43
Slackware 10.2
Qt: 3.3.4
KDE: 3.4.2
Remote Desktop Connection: 3.4.2

Anything in /var/log/messages or /var/log/Xorg.0.log?
Is this a usb mouse or a trackpad?

The USB mouse, track ball and touch pad all stop working.

Here is the end of the Xorg log:
Code:

Here is the end of a log for a "clean" Xorg (when I restart):
Code:

Looks like there may be something wrong with the power management. I could not find anything in the messages log that looked interesting.

This only seems to happen when I am in vncviewer or krdc in fullscreen mode (I am not sure that it doesn't happen in non-fullscreen mode though). Any ideas on what next?
