I have a nice little setup running kde with beryl on my desktop screen and mythtv on my tv. Today I was watching a movie trailer on my desktop screen with kaffeine-xine and form lack of memory I guess it got real slow and almost froz when I skipped forward. So I hit ctrl-alt-f1 and typed "killall kaffeine" and ctrl-alt-f7. Srangely my desktop screen was black exept for the mouse that I could move but not click on anything including mythtv on the tv that was still fully visible. My keyboard also stopped working so ctrl-alt-f# was out of the question, however I have an IR remote for mythtv and that still works. It plays movies, music and everything works like it should exept there is no way to get focus.
Well, I have had stranger things happen to computers but I tought it was rather odd (and anoying) that it would only accept input from my remote. The keyboard is so dead it even refuses num-lock (no light).
I don't expect anyone to know what's going on here so I decided to post it here instead of suport. I guess I'll just have to learn from my mistakes and make sure I have SSH set up for the next time something odd like this happends.
