Tino, can you check the contents of the power/wakeup files in the
appropriate sysfs directories? That would be the directory for the
keyboard device itself and the directory for the USB host controller
for the bus the keyboard is on.

By default, power/wakeup should be "enabled" for the keyboard device
and "disabled" for the host controller. If you write "enabled" into
the host controller's file by hand, does that fix the problem?
