Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 186649
Touchpad does not survive suspend
Last modified: 2008-01-19 23:37:44 EST
Description of problem:
After suspending my Acer TravelMate 291LCi and wakeing him up, the touchpad acts
weird (the mouse pointer jumps on the screen and acts, as it was clicked
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. hit "power" button to wake up
3. use touchpad
mouse pointer jumps and acts, as if the buttons were pressed almost everywhere
normal behaviour of touchpad (should do, what the *user* wants)
ACPI Error (evevent-0312): No installed handler for fixed event 
PM: Finishing wakeup.
psmouse.c: GlidePoint at isa0060/serio4/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 1
psmouse.c: resync failed, issuing reconnect request
i8042: failed to resume active multiplexor, mouse won't work
input: PS/2 Generic Mouse as /class/input/input4
psmouse.c: Mouse at isa0060/serio4/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 2 bytes
I have no other mouse attached to the laptop, only the internal touchpad!
Thats clearly a kernel problem though.
Reassigning to kernel component.
