I am having this issue for quite some time now. I have Ubuntu 16.04 installed in my Lenovo B-4030 laptop. I have currently installed Mac OS-X theme from here.
But I have upgraded from Ubuntu 14.04 and I faced the same issue in Ubuntu 14.04. The issue is as follows:
When I put my laptop in sleep mode and log in again, the icons and/or mouse pointer does not appear. Although I can interact with the icons and mouse pointer. Not the same icons disappear everytime, it happens to random icons. But when I click on the disappeared icon both the pointer and the icon come alive.
I've tried to search for an answer and found this.
Are both scenarios same? Because in the above link, user is talking about mouse pointer specifically and not about icons.
What could be the possible reason for this strange behaviour?
Has this issue been resolved?
