Sorry, I missed that part!
(amended my profile to reflect that below my avatar)
Have you checked in your Device Manager to see if there's any issues with the devices there. To do this, go to Start ... Run ... and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and then press Enter.
Also, check in your Event Viewer for errors in either the Application or System category that may be related to the mouse or keyboard (or anything else suspicious). To do this, go to Start ... Run ... and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and then press Enter.
Since it fixes itself with a hard reset, I'd guess that it redetects the mouse/keyboard - and then something else causes it to become unrecognized. The most likely culprit (IMO) is a driver - but determining which one it is will require some troubleshooting.
A list of the drivers is located here: http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/Ace...FTOKEN=49559604
(I got it from this link: http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/forms/acerdrivers.cfm
I'd first try the Intel Chipset drivers, then the Synaptics Pointing driver and the Touchpad driver
