Around 1 month ago I was forced to buy a new notebook (Asus Zenbook UX331UN) and decided to roll with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS in dual-boot with Windows 10. At first everything seemed to work fine, but after a while I noticed a strange behavior:
- When I'm using my external mouse and keyboard (Logitech, connected via bluetooth-sender plugged into a USB slot) the mouse pointer randomly freezes around every 5 mins. The touchpad on the notebook is still working without any problems and so is the keyboard (which means the bluetooth connection is still alive). This problem occurs more often if I switch windows (e.g. between Firefox and VS Code) and some expensive background-task is running. I already searched for hours online for any similar problems, but could not find anything.
- In rare cases the clicks from the touchpad also seem to become
disabled (which means that the cursor is moving but you cannot click anything on the UI). I suspect that this may have the same root cause as the problem above.
I used the same external mouse / keyboard with my previous notebook running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS without any problems of that kind.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
