I know this is not programming related. But I can't find any topics on Google or UbuntuForums.

So the problem is:
When gnome-screensaver starts on the moment Eclipse has the focus and I wake up again my laptop, Eclipse doesn't listen to keyboard-events. To solve this I have to change the focus to another program and then back to Eclipse. Than it works again.

This isn't a real problem, but it would be nice if someone can solve it.

I don't know if this is at all related, but are you setting the GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS environment variable as described in question 1816485? This solved eclipse button click/focus problems for me under Ubuntu.
