Same problem here.
After resume, mouse pointer disappears, then I suspend again (lid closing) and after the second resume, mouse pointer reappears.
doing Alt-F2 and Alt-F1 again to switch to a vt and back makes it re-appear, but it's still kind of annoying nonetheless.
Also happening on a Thinkpad X201 and a Thinkpad X121e with xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.21.12-2.fc19.x86_64 and kernel-3.10.10-200.fc19.x86_64. Happens on resume from suspend.
Reappears with ctrl-alt-F4 and back.
I see this regularly on two desktops (an i5-2400/HD Graphics 2000 and an i3-2105/HD Graphics 3000) where suspending does not lock the screen, but I never see it on my laptop (i7-2630QM/HD Graphics 3000) where suspending does lock the screen. All three systems are running F19.
The pointer disappears, but the system still acts like it is there (reacts to clicks, hover, etc). Locking the screen seems to fix the issue as well.
This is happening on my Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook too.
Kernel: 3.11.1-200.fc19.x86_64 (and a couple of previous kernel versions too)
Also, having this problem on a Dell Latitude E6520.
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
