Problem is two finger scrolling is not working and the hibernate option is dimmed out thus i cannot choose that option.

After upgrading to kernel 4.3* and even 4.4*, two finger scrolling is working but new problems,

  1. the mouse freeze at any moment and i have to hard boot the computer
  2. Reboot is not completing, that is it plays the playmouth and then gets stuck in a blank screen and never reboots

Any solution to this?

Like mentioned on comments, disabling Bluetooth and adding this

blacklist dw_dmac
blacklist dw_dmac_core


sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

solved all the issues for me. I got this from this link http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=163126&start=20#p961212
