After suspending my laptop, the touchpad and the usb mouse will not work properly. The cursor can move, but the buttons cannot be clicked.

but if I remove the corresponding modules and install them again, everything is fine.

sudo rmmod psmouse
sudo rmmod usbhid


sudo insmod /... #install the psmouse module
sudo insmod /... #install usb mouse module

It's OK again.

Who can tell my how to make it right? Thanks!

  • What version of Ubuntu are you running? – Seth Apr 23 '14 at 4:24

create a script to run when awake from suspend

sudo gedit /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/mouse

Add copy following text in the script


case "$1" in
        modprobe -r psmouse
        modprobe psmouse

as any script in /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/ runs as root your problem should be solved
