When installed from the *Lubuntu alternate* ISO files, the default systems are affected by this bug:

After time-out the screensaver kicks in and the user is locked out. At the unlock screen the cursor is visible, but after unlock the cursor is invisible. This bug does not affect the corresponding desktop ISO files, neither the live session nor the default installed systems.

ISO files: The Lubuntu Xenial final version dated 20160419

In my case pointer come back (lets say in 2-3 minutes using laptop) unexpectedly.
I was trying to reload kernel module (modprobe -r/-a psmouse) and changing pointer style in xfce4-mouse-settings, but none of my ideas seemed to work.
I have Dell Latitude 3400 laptop with Intel 4400 HD Graphics (Haswell). Let me know if you need some logs.

I suspect this is related to bug # 1568604 and after a chat, I (read as we) are going to mark it as duplicate. When the fix comes out, if it does not solve this issue it can still be un-linked.
