Keyboard and trackpad no longer respond.  No logged error message.  System doesn't seem to notice anything happened.  If I try to sleep the system (close the lid), it sets up, almost gets there, and aborts.  Either something rejected the sleep request, or it did sleep but didn't really.  Not sure which.  rejection seems more plausable.  And if I shut down after an attempted sleep, the kernel panics at the last moment.  I had brute forced ability to ADB_RESET the bus, but that just oopsed the system like a sleep would.

Ok.  I'll try that next time it happens.
