Hello Marcus,

Thanks a lot for the bug report! We appreciate it.

We will examine the schedule for the kernel and see if we should patch the kernel or if there will be a new kernel in the near future that addresses this issue as part of standard upgrades and fixes.

Thank you again for reporting this!

You can solve this issue easily... (it's been affecting me since my Ubuntu 9.X .. and it seems it continue to affect other distros like Mint) :

1) modify grub file: nano /etc/default/grub;

2) edit the line and let it be like this:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash i8042.reset i8042.nomux i8042.nopnp i8042.noloop"

3) Update your grub with this command: update-grub

I hope it works 4 you... in my case, I'm using a Vostro 1510.
