I am installing Gentoo onto a Toshiba L775D laptop. Normally upon cold boot, everything works. However, if I reboot the unit I lose the keyboard and touchpad. I see no errors in the logs. What could be causing this? Holding the power button and booting cold fixes this again.

I may have something figured out. It is setting my built-in keyboard as input3. If I plug in my Razer Black Widow USB keyboard THAT gets set as input0 and it works. There are no errors related to the keyboard, however. I only see that it is set as input3.

I may have figured out something, but still not sure. If I press any key on the GRUB menu, my stuff always seems to work. If I let it boot on its own, it may or may not work. What the heck could cause this? Nothing is strange in the logs.

you may use xev to see if there are any events generated when you press a key or use the touchpad in question
