I have an Alienware M14X running windows 7. It is common for the shift and/or the control key to not work in multiplayer games (often all it does is slow the mouse down to a crawl and make a beeping noise) in additon mouse movement can become sluggish, or stop altogether if I press any keys at the same time.

This doesn't always happen although it seems to occur most often if laptop has been in sleep mode. This problem has occured in Starcraft 2 and a range of FPS games include TF2 and World of Tanks but I have yet to notice anything in single player games. I assume that there is some setting that I need to change but I have no idea what it is.

If I'm honest it sounds like a driver issue. What mouse are you using?
