I've got no idea what that is, I'm afraid. It's happily passed me by! Any link?

I don't think I've ever put this machine in tablet mode
That is exactly what happens, the computer enters Tablet Mode, even with the option disabled
As the option is disabled the pointing devices are also disabled!

I don't think that's what is happening. Tablet mode is visibly very different on my desktop PC because I have a lot of applications pinned to the Taskbar, which disappear when tablet mode is invoked. (I just checked.) It would be difficult to miss that.

Odd behaviour, though. IIRC, invoking tablet mode on my tablet doesn't disconnect either keyboard or mouse (I have a Bluetooth keyboard/mouse set for it.)

You mentioned the Windows key. I do have one. How is it relevant?

Yesterday one of my computers entered Tablet Mode twice, and the other one once
There is no visible difference, the mouse and keyboard becomes disabled
As above, the only way out of this is to use the Windows Key, which then gives access to the Taskbar, and to then tab to perform a Restart
