FIXED ISSUES * After resuming from S3 power state, the HID CIR driver might not report the first key press. * If a key is pressed and the IR signal does not reach the IR receiver (e.g., due to inaccurate pointing to the IR receiver), the next key pressed might not be reported by the HID CIR driver.
