« on: January 28, 2016, 08:33:21 am »
Hello there!

I just discovered that when i use Logitech USB mouse M325 which works just fine and when it is plugged in to laptop and i does little tapping with touchpad whole system freeze and canont do anything but force shutdown with power button.
closing the laptop lid and wait it go into sleep will help to resolve the problem.

Is the mouse receiver plugged into a USB 3.0 port ? .. try plugging it into a USB 2 port.

or maybe try the irqpoll kernel boot parameter.

is this one of those "unifiying receiver" mice .. it sounds like the system might be being confused by it and thinking touchpad taps are mouse clicks.

have you tried installing "solaar" to manage the "unifying receiver" to manage devices attached via it

see here:

run:
Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:daniel.pavel/solaarthen
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get updatethen
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install solaarto install it

thanks for the reply.

Yes It is plugged into USB 3.0 because I only have 3.0 slots.
And also is unified receiver mice.

Now I installed solaar, but there are no options to do anything.
And that didn't solve the problem.
But it's ok. There were option to disable touchpad so I can live with that bug.

Thank you anyway!
