Is this helpful?
My recollection was that by holding the shift and CNTL keys down, Kubuntu
thought that I was requesting so called "slow keys". Even without the
keyboard, I was able to open the system settings then Accessibility, and
shut down "slow keys". The keyboard came back immediately.

If not how about this?

On the issue of your machine being slow, the first one makes more sense, but
since logging out corrects it, you may want to look at the second one.
