Hi, I'm a Linux/Ubuntu newbie.
I've installed Gutsy Gibbon on an Turion65 X2 laptop, coexisting with Vista, but bootloading with GRUB. After setting the screen saver to activate/screen-lock within a minute, I closed the lid. When I re-opened the lid later, I promptly entered the password to unlock. The desktop reappeared, but I noticed that the mouse pointer was missing. While moving the mouse, I could see a faint dimming of icons (apparently when a mouse pointer is hovering) but otherwise nothing could be done using the mouse.
I had to shut down via keyboard.
What just happened?
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
