I've posted this to XP groups also, but just in the off chance it may be
hardware related I'll add it here.

Usually occurs when kids have iPod hooked up, but has happened randomly
also. USB on front of machine being used, not keyboard's.

Display is not black(like when power saver kicks in) but kind of a light
gray which tells me above has occurred.

Mouse and keyboard have no reaction when used, yet I can go to one of the
other machines on the network, access files, etc. Doesn't seem like it
has locked up yet will take no input or respond to it's own keyboard or

Only way I've found to get it back is to power down and reboot.

Check in your Event Viewer for any errors.
