I've come across an interesting development regarding the Touchpad issue. Since I was having the random freeze when logging in after stand by (or just locked screen), I decided to switch from gdm to lightdm to see if that solves the issue. Indeed, I no longer experience any freezing when logging in. However, the Touchpad now never works even after returning from standby.

To add to that, I also noticed that when gdm was freezing and I had to restart it, the Touchpad stops working afterwards (and I usually had to go to standby and back to make it work again).

Seems that there's a direct relation between gdm and the Touchpad. Not sure what though.
