Keyboard and mouse suddenly stop working

Question

I've recently come across a curious and indeed incredibly annoying problem. It has only happened three times but it's indeed too annoying to just let it go. 

When running or riding a horse the keyboard and mouse will suddenly cease to work for whatever reason and I don't have any control whatsoever, restarting the computer being the only way out as neither Esc, Alt+Tab or Ctrl+Alt+Supr will do anything at all. My character just keeps running or riding as if I had toggled "C" until it bumps into something in his path that won't let him go any further.

Any ideas?

You're using or have tried using the ports on the back of your computer case yeah? If not make sure you try that as it might be your USB hub if you're using one or the connector that powers your front usb ports (the ones on the top and front of your case). I'd also make sure there aren't any kinks or nicks in your keyboard and mouse and that whenever this happens that your num lock light are lit are your keyboard (or that you can get it to turn on and off by pressing the button)

Open Note pad....Press the movement keys.....see if any are sticking...mash them like you are playing....especially WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

Make sure windows is not using "Sticky keys". or keyboard repete?

Check in different port...different Keyboard.
