Upon waking up my rMBP the keyboard and trackpad were not responsive but the backlight came on.  Prior to lifting the lid I had plugged in a HDMI connection to an external non-apple 27" monitor and a USB connection(needed to route the HDMI signal no mouse or keyboard) to the KVMP switch. I have use this configuration for the past month or two.  I had Parallels 8 running with a Win 7 VM.  I closed the lid and unplugged both usb and HDMI connection and tried it again, no luck.


I plugged in my magic mouse which did work and plugged in a USB keyboard to log in and shut everything down cleanly.  Rebooting fixed but I'd like to know why this happened.  If I was away from home, I wouldn't be able to grab a usb keyboard to log in or do anything.  I also don't want to have to do a hard shutdown if I can avoid it.


Searching I found a few others with a similar issue but magic mouse or another keyboard didn't work. 


I will try a SMC reset and hardware test if it happens again but is there anything else anyone has seen or heard of that may cause this issue?
