Pointer randomly registers right-click after sleep

Hi there,

So, I have a minor problem with my Mandriva 2009 Spring Edition KDE install on my Dell Studio 15 laptop. For some reason, when coming back from sleep mode, it will randomly register right clicks. After a little while (less than an hour) the problem will slowly resolve itself. I have no idea what is going on. It only seems to happen when I close the laptop lid: i.e., if I close the lid after putting it to sleep, and then wake it up again, the problem occurs. There doesn't seem to be a problem with it when I keep the lid open during sleep. Does anyone know what this is, and how I can fix it? It's getting to be a real pain.

Thank you.

just curious, but is the pointer in question a tap sensitive trackpad? if so you might want to look at lowering the sensitivity on the pad


click, mouse
