T580 Touchpad lagging (but not USB mouse)

2018-12-04, 8:12 AM

I am having this weird issue where the mouse coursor is really laggy, but only if I'm using the touchpad. If I'm using a mouse connected over USB, the issue goes away. I've truned down the sensitivity on the touchpad, but there is no change. The issue is particularly bad if I don't have the laptop plugged into AC power. This laptop is only 3ish months old. It's gotten to the point where the issue makes the altop unusable, and this is not something I expect from a Lenovo product. Is there a fix?

Ther touchpad is actually also a USB device but it is connected via a different hub. Open the task manager and see if anything is using excessive resources.  Are you capturing video via the camera or recording sound?

I've been checking task manager, and haven't seen any resource hogs. It doesn't matter what application I'm using either. The lagging is weird, as if there's a buffer of the mouse movements, but the laptop gets them very slowly. I actually have my microphone muted, and the camera cover on.

I have the same issue with my X1 Carbon 6 Gen. It seems many people are affected by this. Booting into safe mode fixes the lag for me so this is a W10/driver issue.

I haven't noticed the issue recently, so I guess it was a software thing. Buggy drivers, Windows 10, who knows these days with rapmant sub-standard quality control.
