[ubuntu] EEE PC 1001PX Ubuntu 12.04 Pointer Icon freezes but Touchpad Scroll Still Works.

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi fellow Ubuntu users...I have a bit of a strange thing happening on an ASUS EEEPC (Model 1001px). This happens a few times a week but cannot be replicated on demand. Sometimes (typically when opening a website), the mouse pointer on the screen freezes. When this happens, the edges of the touchpad work, but you cannot move the pointer with the touchpad. So, it's like the touchpad is partially dead. To fix the issue, you can either reboot or you can shut the lid of the netbook to put it to sleep. When you open the lid and wake it up, the pointer is working again. Any ideas how to fix this? (Hardware)
