  1. I found the reason why it stops working lol, you probably hit the backslash ( \ ) button right above the enter button, just hit it again.

  1. This is a bug. I happened to me twice; it seems to happen sometimes when you're trying to type. You can still move your mouse, but your keyboard will be completely unresponsive in-game. As you said, you'll still be able to access the Steam menus and your desktop, but you'll have to restart the game in order to fix this.

  2. I had this happen as well. Turned out I'd accidentally hit the ~ key and must have gone into a console mode or something. Pressing it again fixed it, and my keyboard worked again.
