That would be my guess too.  You might want to put your monitor to sleep to
save energy, but you definitely don't want to put your keyboard to sleep to
save energy.  And if the mouse is built-in to the keyboard, it's even worse.
There's no way to wake it up again, unless you can login remotely via ssh,
or something like that.

Did this behavior begin with a kernel upgrade?  That would be my first guess.
Try booting the old kernel and see if the problem persists.
