I'll give this a try when I next have a lock-up.

I'm pretty sure that this problem only occurs before I've cycled through
a suspend-resume.

I suspect bluetooth issues because the bluetooth icon appears until I do
the suspend-resume cycle and then the icon doesn't appear and bluetooth
doesn't work (but the mouse does).

Keyboard navigation still works, and I can switch to a VT too.
