Hello! Whenever I reboot, I am sometimes asked for a password on startup even though I have auto-login enabled. I haven’t really kept track of what causes this, but it seems like it happens after I install updates or applications, although sometimes it happens even when I haven’t made any significant changes.
The password thing doesn’t bother me all that much. However, whenever it happens, my input devices start acting weird after I log in. For example, my shift key would not work on my keyboard, left-clicking on the desktop would not work (it would work anywhere else but on the desktop), mouse scrolling would not work, etc.
Rebooting the system doesn’t fix the issue, if I’m still asked for a password after a reboot. Forcing a hard shutdown (maintaining power key until system abruptly shuts down) sometimes fixes it as then I am not asked for a password on startup.
Has anyone encountered this issue? I did a search and was unable to find much. What would cause my keyboard and mouse to malfunction when auto-login fails?
Thanks a lot
