View Full Version : [ubuntu] Mouse Cursor Freezes after suspend or idleness

September 5th, 2011, 02:06 AM
I have an Advent Laptop. I ve found that if my Laptop remains idle for a while or if I suspend it, the mouse cursor will be frozen in the middle of the screen. Please, can anyone tell me what to do. Thanks!

What model laptop? Is it an external mouse or a touchpad?

A couple of options to try:

1. Kernel paramater atkbd.reset (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=10796261&postcount=11)

2. Kernel paramater i8042.nomux (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-source-2.6.20/+bug/86820/comments/9)
