Every now and then, after using the laptop for a while, or getting it from sleep mode, the touchpad simply quits working as it should. Clicking by simply tapping the pad stops working, and clicking by really pushing in the trackpad itself will only activate either right or left click. Sometimes it even quits working at all. After rebooting the device the issues will be over, which makes me think it is some sort of a software issue.
Also every now and then, while working in my student room, my laptop loses its internet connection. While there are many Wi-Fi signals in my student room-complex, it can't detect any of them. Then, after waiting for some time and rebooting the device once or twice, the connection will get restored, and all the other signals are back as well.
Both issues aren't very huge, yet very annoying when working on a paper or so. Especially since I bought the laptop a little longer then two months ago, assuming due to it's price and the ThinkPad’s reputation (being able to stop a bullet and yet still work) this is a huge disappointment
Anyone who has a solution for me for either one of these problems?

Check this thread here for possible solutions. I was experiencing this myself on my W540, and just downgrading the driver fixed it completely for me; (as well as turning off the power saving feature in Power Management for the adapter.)
There are links to the drivers I'm currently using, as well as later ones if you wish to experiment.
@Moos - Which OS are your running?

I'm running Windows 8.1. I have noted that I have lost the wifi both on battery and while pulgged in. Will try downgrading the drivers and see what happens. Thanks for the help!

@Moos, for your TrackPad issues, I'm guessing you got the latest Ultranav drivers installed, if not, install them:
SYNAPTICS THINKPAD ULTRANAV DRIVER
Then try the following: Open up the Charms - Change PC Settings - PC and Devices - Mouse and Touchpad and change the delay on the Touchpad to Short Delay. (No Delay - Always On for testing purposes if Short Delay doesn't fix it).
I set mine to Short Delay and it makes a world of difference.
