Default Can't Type

When my computer is left on for awhile, I find that I can't type in the Google box, and other areas that require typing. When I re-start, then everything is fine again. I have Windows XP, Mozilla Fire fox.

By "other areas that require typing", do you mean anywhere in fire fox or in all programs on the computer?

Is your keyboard USB? Are you able to still use the mouse? If so, is it also USB?

I'm just wondering if the computer turns off the USB ports "to save energy" and then is having trouble getting them to turn back on?
