At home, in Oakville, the machine with the keyboard issue is on a 1300VA 
UPS. My laptop (the wireless one) is on a 700VA UPS. In Toronto, all 
servers are on a huge APC UPS. Also, there are many, many other machines 
on the same mains in Toronto and nothing else acted up. The Xen machine 
and the network are in different racks and connected only by a couple 
switches... Many other systems are closer.

A power event did cross my mind, but I don't think so. I'm guessing it 
was just "one of those nights" and that was that.
