Studio XPS Touchpad not working after sleep

This question has suggested answer(s)

Hello,

I have a dell studio XPS 1640 running windows 7 64-bit.  Since I have owned the computer I have had a problem with the touchpad when coming out of sleep.  About 50% of the time I come out of sleep, the touchpad is unresponsive.  In order to get it working again I use the keyboard to put the computer back into sleep and then wake it back up again.  This doesn't always work but it usually does.  I have the most up-to-date BIOS, the newest synaptics driver from the synaptics website, and I also just did a clean install of Windows 7 hoping this would resolve the issue, which it did not.  I really don't think it is a hardware issue, seems more like a software issue, as if the driver is just not loading sometimes when coming out of sleep.  This is driving me crazy and is really a pain.  Anybody have any other thoughts on something I can try to resolve this issue? Thank you!
