delayed keyboard response at LUKS password prompt

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I have come into possession of a Compaq Presario V3000 (V3016US0 laptop on which I finally succeeded in installing Fedora 18. While it runs well when it boots up, the problem is in the boot process. When I boot the machine, from the time it starts to load the system and pops up the LUKS password prompt is brief. However, I then am stuck at that prompt for about 25 seconds because the keyboard will not respond until then. This is the only system I have that demonstrates this behavior. On two netbooks and a desktop system, the keyboard responds immediately after the password prompt appears. (HowTos)
