touchpad automatically turning off...
 
whenever i hibernate or shut down my laptop,its touch pad automatically turns off..
next time i login,i've to start it by pressing Fn+F8(which i think is my laptop custom shortcut).
how can i sort out this problem...??

Personally, I think this is a function of your laptop and not the operating system. In this case, the odds of installing an operating system which knows which specific register a specific Laptop manufacturer uses to enable or disable the touchpad, is pretty remote.
Does it/did it happen while using Windows?

Aha! Missing info which would have caused me to give a different response!
Have you changed anything in your Fedora install prior to this happening, updates, etc? If you run your system up on a live CD, does it still happen? (Use a different distro)

i have no problem in any distro i run...
this is my today's terminal history(i'm posting only significant commands here,not all of terminal history):
Code:

nano
gnome-session-settings
xhost +
sudo -u gdm dbus-launch gnome-control-center
systemctl status bluetooth.service

no updates today,no significant changes besides these commands
