OK - i have not come across this before! Is it an apple keyboard and mouse you are using?
I don't install over Snow Leopard when I install I always install onto a clean hard drive - I don't know if that makes a difference in this case! I have an old 2.5" SATA drive 60 GB which I have put in an USB enclosure - it holds the Snow Leopard Install and the Installer Partition so when I install I just boot from it and use the Installer partition to install a fresh Lion. You can do the same with a USB Stick if its big enough. Ie I followed the default instructions for xMove and Lion on the 60GB drive and then removed it and put it in a USB enclosure! So my installs take around 5 mins!
I am assuming you have tried all available USB ports to see if mouse and keyboard will work.
I have never seen a USB mouse and keyboard not work if they were working initially before the Lion software install. If they are not Apple items is it possible to borrow ones to test.
Another quick sense check - you haven't installed any other kexts or fix's?
Edited to add
Disconnect everything else apart from keyboard and mouse when you install - you can even install the network later! I do as I use the updated Lnx2mac driver which is not yet in Multibeast for Lion.
Everything is good now
I looked at the rBoot you've mentioned, and I happened to have a CCC backup of my previous Lion Install before upgrading my BIOS. I tried loading this before with iBoot but it never worked so I had the idea of having a new install to get back on my feet which went down south. Then I tried the rBoot and it's wala! I loaded my previous Lion Install with it and re-ran the multibeast this time with the right specs you've listed. Reboot, put it to sleep, clicked the mouse, and it woke up Put it back to sleep again, then tapped the keyboard, it woke up again Mission accomplished. All I needed was the right BIOS and the rBoot. Thanks the_gael and tonymac, now I can sleep good tonight while the Lion snores.
