Touchpad and Trackpoint suddenly stop working

when starting my Latitude D830 from suspend to ram it was suddenly missing touchpad and trackpoint support. I restartet and updated but still, both devices aren’t even listed in yast anymore. Keyboard and bluetooth mouse work fine, though.
Running synclient TouchpadOff=0 says Couldn’t find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded?. Now, i googled a bit and all i could find was some tinkering with the xorg.conf, what is especially ugly, since suse doesn’t normally use one anymore. Plus, xorg.conf gives me flashbacks of allnighters trying to fix me system again :’(

So, any suggestions?

OK, the solution was simple - too simple. I just suspended to ram once more and then had the devices back.
