    Mouse/Touchpad almost freeze, even system crash with Ubuntu Gnome 17.04

    I've decided to make the transition from Unity to Gnome Shell early at this stage of uprading from Ubuntu 16.10 to 17.04 (64-bit).

    I did a fresh install using Beta 2 Release of Ubuntu Gnome 17.04 (64-bit), and then upgraded my system to the final release seamlessly, I guess.

    However I hen started having some problems.

    Usually my touchpad or mouse becomes almost ineffective:
    I cannot use any of the menus, buttons, etc. although sometimes some buttons might work -- mostly the window close button.
    Rarely the whole system freezes, and I have to make a cold restart.


    I have a feeling that Ubuntu Gnome 17.04 is pushing my CPU towards overloading and overheating.

    I don't think there's a hardware issue as I saw the same problem when I cloned my system (with Clonezilla) from Dell Latitude E4310 to Lenovo IdeaPad S400.

    Maybe I should try and reinstall the system using the Final Release of Ubuntu Gnome 17.04?

    Any ideas/suggestions would be appreciated...

    I'm also using Ubuntu Gnome, 17.04, and my touchpad freezes sometimes too. I have no idea what causes it, it seems random.

    Confirmed on my notebook. The desktop, however, works fine.
