power saving problem with mouse pad

    If my laptop is dormant for a little while it shuts down (obviously power
    saving) but when I press a key
    to fire it up again the mouse pad moves the arrow pointer but I am unable to
    click or double click with it. I can only
    click with the mouse pad buttons. If I restart the laptop, everything is
    fine.
    Also if I just close the lid to shut down, when I switch back on and windows
    reverts back to where
    I was, the mouse pad will not click, only move pointer.

    Any ideas ?? can be very annoying.

  2. Have you looked for a "patch" at the Dell website?
    I have a Dell Inspiron 1100 and signed up for their 'File Watch' service.
    I have gotten notices for this type of problem.

    Hope this helps.
