Involuntary reboot log 10.11

Again keyboard jammed waking from sleep, and it looks like my on-sleep hook did not run because key repeat was active and I could see that Karabiner-Elements was still running (because on hitting both shift keys, the caps lock light would toggle).

One last step to try before turning off the lockscreen entirely, setting up a Karabiner keybinding to run the kill script from the lockscreen.

Involuntary reboot log 10.10

Keyboard was jammed on waking from sleep, requiring a hard reset. This time the repeating started about three characters into my passphrase. Note that this happened even with Karabiner-Elements completely inactive, so this is an OS-level flaw for sure. At this point, I’m going to say, "fuck it", and disable the damn lockscreen so I at least have a way of recovering when this happens; when I am not using the machine and it is going to be out of my sight I’ll need to power it down (🤦).

Keyboard was jammed on waking from sleep, requiring a hard reset. This time it seemed to let me type the passphrase and hit enter, but then it went into repeat mode before the lock screen went away.
