    Daniel,

    That was the first thing I tried before even making this whole post.

    Robert,

    Loss of the keyboard happens to me every day or two and it is so frequent that when I go into
    my KD Subdivision route to do some editing, the first thing I do is cycle the "W" key. If that does
    not work, then get out and restart the editor. If that fails, then what I found is that if there is a lot
    of background stuff going on, like for example I have used "Chrome" several times, then I run
    Glary Utilities, a product my supplier puts on all machines he sets up. This is the "free" version
    which does not do everything, but it does recover space by dumping the temporary files etc. from
    poking around on the internet. Usually that does it, but if not, I restart the machine. My supplier
    recommends running Glary Utilities daily, and restarting weekly. Usually Glary stops and asks
    about shutting down Chrome and I allow that.

    Out of curiosity when this happened once, I went into task manager and found several instances
    of Chrome. There are other programs that do not completely exit when closed.

    There's an option in Chrome's settings to leave it running in the background if any apps or extensions require it. So its a setting... but it could make certain things that initiate a chrome session stop working it you disable it from running in the background. so it's a choice.
