    Mouse click not functional after waking from sleep

    Hi Folks,

    I have a very strange issue here. When I wake from sleep, my mouse (trackpad) click does not work. It sometimes has the blue rotating circle indicating it's busy, but other times it's just the pointer. I can select a window, but that window does not actually fully focus such that I can interact with it. I can ctrl-alt-del to get the task manager, and I can interact with it with the mouse. But if I click away from the task manager, I cannot click back to it. Rather, I have to ctrl-alt-del back to it.

    After 5 minutes or so, the mouse usually becomes functional again.

    I've tried to disable and re-enable the mouse via device manager, but the "disable" button is greyed out. All my drivers are up to date.

    Any thoughts about how to debug this?

    thanks in advance.

    Hello luckycharms,

    You might see if troubleshooting with a clean startup may be able to help ID a cause.
