Not sure if this applies to USB keyboards or not, but with the older
type of Sun keyboard, unplugging/plugging the keyboard is seen as the
equivalent of a break, so the machine would drop to the OK prompt.
Perhaps your KVM is not DTRT as far as keeping power to the keyboard

You could try disabling the break sequence from the command line and
seeing if this prevents it:

kbd -a disable

Check out the man page for kbd for more details.  You might also want
to try a different USB keyboard if you have one.
