    Welcome to openSUSE Forums. That is an unusual problem you're describing. It's hard to know whether it is a hardware issue, or a bug without more info. I note that your input device is treated as a basic PS/2 mouse (rather than a touchpad), and sometimes better support can be obtained by using a more recent kernel. It might be worth a shot here.

    When you touchpad device stop working does Xorg still report it as present?
    Code:
    libinput list-devices
    Are events still generated when using the touchpad? Using the appropriate /dev/input/eventX path for your device (as reported by libinput) do something like this
    Code:
    libinput-debug-events --device /dev/input/event1
    and see if any touchpad -related output is produced.

    If you restart the desktop with CTRL+ALT+Backspace (hold down or press twice), that will restart the X-server. Does that rersult in a working touchpad again, or do you need to reboot completely?

    Hi, welcome to these forums.

    Another thing to consider might be the fact that you have a USB mouse plugged in as well. Which desktop environment ( KDE, GNOME ) are you using? Chances are that the touchpad gets disabled because a mouse is plugged in.
    ° Appreciate my reply? Click the star and let me know why.

    Yes, good catch Gertjan. The OP may well have such a desktop configuration inadvertently set to cause this behaviour (although I had initially assumed that the OP was using a USB-connected mouse because the touchpad was simply becoming non-functional after a while).
