I have an X1 Yoga (1st generation) laptop. Whenever I flip the screen around to use it as a tablet, and then flip it back to resume using it as a laptop, the mouse pointer disappears. The touch screen continues to function, but the touchpad fails to work. I can get it back by closing the computer and then waking it up again, but it is quite annoying to do this. Is this a known problem?

Thanks for your response. My situation is a bit different, in that I don't see the trace of the mouse pointer. Also, when I go to Settings > Mouse > Additional Mouse Options, all the settings on the ThinkPad tab (namely the options to enable the TrackPoint and TouchPad) get grayed out. When I put the computer to sleep and then reopen it, those options return. So it's not a graphics issue - the mouse itself is somehow getting shut down. I tried updating the driver, but that didn't help.

Ok, Hope I'm not wearing out my welcome with you. I was searching through just a few minutes ago, and happened on this linkhttps://dottech.org/13949/how-to-find-your-mouse-cursor-after-you-have-lost-it/
The setting the link suggested was only supposed to give an indication where the mouse was when you press the right or left control key, not to make it appear. Well, I thought that was better than nothing so I tried it. As you will read, the setting is labled "Show location of mouse when I press the Control key." When I checked the box and hit apply...babam...the mouse pointer appeared again. I don't know for sure if it was related to what I did or if it was coincedental, but the arrow came back into view before I even had a chance to press the Control Key. I do not know if this will solve the problem perminantly; time will tell on that, but its a start anyway. I wanted to pass this on to you in hopes it would help.

Ambico: My problem is exactly as you describe. When I use the touch pad I can see where the cursor is by things highlighting, but I can't see the actual cursor arrow. I will follow this thread closely, hopefully one of us will find a solution.

Ambico: On mouse settings I tried your tip "Show location of mouse when I press the Control key"... the circle thing works, but cursor still gone. Any further development with your efforts?
