Sometimes for no reason that I can observe my Synaptics touchpad will stop responding to scroll the scroll function (I swipe my finger down the right side). I then have to reboot to get it back. Does anyone know how to fix this? Preferably without upgrading the driver - I upgraded the driver before and it turned out to be crap. I don't want to do that again.
I have an Inspiron 9400 with Windows XP Media Centre Edition
One trigger I've noticed for the touchpad to stop working is when working over Remote Desktop if the screen goes into power-saving mode.
Another is when I watch Flash (I hate Flash!) videos on YouTube in full-screen mode.
