OK, have the fix for you and its a simple one! First, I will rundown my issue so there will be no question as to what the issue was! Started off by randomly losing my keypad and trackpak, mayby once a few weeks. It gradually became worse to every day and having to reboot the Mac to sometimes get it back, sometimes it worked, some times it did not. Eventually i had complete failure. I reformatted my drive and installed a fresh OS, didnt work. I checked my battery with Coconut to see if it was ok, and it was. I tried the fridge method to see if I had a swollen battery, did not change.
Finnaly i decided to order the trackpad ribbon cable, to me it was the only thing that made any sence since it wasnt a software issue, or a hardware issue. I ordered the cable from Amazon for a whopping $12.00 CAN and had it in 4 days, installed it and man do ever like using my keypad and trackpad now!!!!! Works great and right away. Saved my self 400.00 from taking it to Apple. Below is the link if you like!
Tools required - 1 Pentalobe 5 (P5) screwdriver for the case, 1 T5 (torx)screwdriver for the battery/trackpad cover.

Hope this helps everyone, easy 10 minute fix and a $12.00 part

Was the machine dropped or squeezed? (Stacked or pushed in a bag/compartment) Did you upgrade, add any software, or did you go inside the machine before this behavior started? Is this a wake from sleep issue (in other words does this happen after you leave a running machine alone for a while?)
The machine was stationed on the desk. I was playing a game on it when all of a sudden the keyboard became unresponsive. I had an external mouse connected to play the game so i immediately check the trackpad which to find the trackpad failed to work too.
I had brought my laptop out in the morning. I returned home(4pm) and was able to have a fully-functioned laptop until late at night (11pm).
I decided to upgrade from 10.9.2 to 10.9.5 to see if the problem will disappear AFTER it stopped working.
To kill the Bluetooth issue, and extend battery life turn it off (unless there is some Bluetooth device you must use) deleting the ~User/Library/Preferences .plist file for Bluetooth may resolve that problem. Often strange application behavior is the result of a corrupt .plist file.
I deleted that .plist however the internal keyboard and trackpad remain unresponsive. I can't seem to get them to work even after i deleted that .plist you recommended. The search for a keyboard via bluetooth pops up again after i restarted my laptop. Is the Library Macintosh HD -> Library -> Preferences OR did you mean the hidden Library within my account (in this case Michael -> Library . . .)?
I have just had the same problem. trying to solve it but to no avail
