I dual-boot Kubuntu and Windows 10, and it happens in both, though more frequently in Linux. The trackpoint and touchpad always freeze together, but controlling the pointer with my phone through KDE Connect stays working.
Could this be a BIOS or firmware update issue, since it's a recent problem, OS independent, and always affects two pointing devices at the same time? I work a ways out of the city with limited internet, so can't try downloading and updating everything willy nilly (but will definitely download a driver, etc if you think that's the issue)
Searching here and Google hasn't turned up any similar issues as far as I can find. Thanks for any help you can give!
