    Never had this before, only since installing El Capitan:

    When I want to log in after Sleep, the usual log in screen appears with the correct user info and the blank password window.
    Then, as soon as I touch any key, it auto fills the password window with a large number of dots (not my PW, which is shorter.
    When I erase these, it does the same again as soon as I touch any key.
    This goes on and on...
    Only remedy I found is to power off the keyboard and then power it on again. Following this I can normally enter my password and log in.

    Anyone else seen this? Suggestions?

    Got the same issue and it does similar when typing in the safari address bar. Checked the accessibility options and its nothing in there, I'm at a loss.
