I use 12.04 and an old HP Probook 4515s. Every time I start the PC, everything works fine but after about 20 minutes, my mouse freezes. Neither the PC nor any program works, just the cursor.

What can I do?


This used to be a problem and at the time it turned out you need to disable touchpad tracking while typing. A solution was found, but I am unsure whether the same solution will work for you. Worth a try though. Run synclient TouchpadOff=0. This solution can be seen at this forum.

  • that doesn't seem to be a command?? – hadi Sep 8 '12 at 10:41
  • Synclient should be installed by default. It exists on my installation, using 12.04. Make sure you copy the above command precisely. – SMeznaric Sep 8 '12 at 19:52
