Thread: Cursor Flicker and Sleep issues

    Default Cursor Flicker and Sleep issues

    Hi,
    I am facing some issues using openSUSE 12.3. On installation, the entire setup was working fine. I just updated my system, and I am facing the following issues:

    1.) Cursor keeps flickering. This generally happens when I try to scroll.
    2.) When I put my laptop to sleep, I am not able to recover from it. I get a blank screen, and nothing works after that, and I have no option but to turn off using the switch.

    I am running openSUSE 12.3 with KDE 4.10.3 release 1
    My system specs are as follows:
    Intel Core i5 Third Gen
    8 GB RAM
    Intel HD 4000
    Realtek 8723ae Wireless (I have installed the compat-wireless package from source to get this running)

    Please let me know what I can do to fix this.
    Thanks in Advance

    It may be helpful if you tell us what laptop it is exactly. In my opinion sleep issues are a common problem and are mostly hardware based as far as I can tell. You can start to diagnose sleep problems on a laptop by knowing exactly what hardware components your laptop has so you can google sleep issues. The next thing to do is look at the pm-suspend logs.

    Flickering cursor seems like maybe a wrong video driver or known problem, I would google intel hd 4000 with you problems and see what you find.

    I am using a Toshiba C850 laptop. I am running openSUSE 12.3 besides Windows 8.
    I checked up the pm-suspend logs, and I found one section which may be the issue.
    SUSE Paste

    I am not very sure what the problem here is. I will try reinstalling the Intel Driver and see
