Was it dropped or did it get wet?

That sounds really odd. Unless the keyboard has some sort of internal buffer, and the ribbon is only connecting when you slide it, perhaps it's really just a big delay. What happens if you type something and then wait a while?

And does the virtual keyboard respond immediately?

It does nothing till I slide it shut

But now its getting worse having issues with the screen going back and a few slides slowly gets it back

No delay in the touch keyboard it works perfectly that way

I think you must tell to your mobile service center about this problem and most of the phone have a problem that slider not work properly,as I was also suffering from this problem and after servicing it work properly.
