there are a bunch of "F11 for XO-1" releases around these days -- can
you be specific about what you installed?

to clarify your symptoms:  after the keyboard/touchpad stop working,
the system will detect a USB keyboard and mouse when they're attached?

as hal suggested, be sure to disable automatic power management
in the control panel.  unlike previous XO-1 releases, the default
configuration is to do aggressive idle-suspend -- the system will
suspend after 15 seconds of inactivity.  because of wireless
bugs, it may not wake up correctly, and the system will lock up.
this doesn't match up with your USB experience, but i don't think
i've ever tried a USB keyboard after the wireless issues hit.
