• [SOLVED] Touchpad doesn't wake up after suspension

    I have an hp notebook with a synaptics touchpad. After first time I suspended my notebook, the touchpad continues to sleep.

    Searching on internet I found this solution:

    $ sudo modeprobe -r psmous
    $ sudo modeprobe psmous

    But now each time I turn on my notebook, I have to enter in tty2, and to give this two commands… very annoying.


  • Hi,

    You can use systemd to run that command for you with the root-resume hook. See here:


  • It’s a pity, there is not solution for the whole problem. Anyway now it’s working.
    thank you so much!

  • I noticed this is working only when I suspend the notebook. Every time I turn on my pc the problem is present again.

  • That doesn’t make sense. Something else must be going on. Could you post your logs here? Thanks.

  • I’ve attached my logs

  • Hi,

    Check that you have these packages installed:

    sudo pacman -S --needed kcm-touchpad-frameworks xf86-input-synaptics 

    If that doesnt help the only other thing I can think of is to try disabling/re-enabling the touchpad via the special function key on your keyboard (if you have one for that purpose–my dell laptop does)

  • Unfortunately I had the two packs and my HP doesn’t have a key for disable/enable the touchpad…
    Anyway thank you so much for your patience and help 😃
