A touch screen does not work correctly after you resume a Windows 7-based computer from sleep

SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a Windows 7-based computer that is connected to one or more touch screens. 
  • You put the computer into sleep or into hibernation. 
  • You resume the computer. 
In this scenario, one or more of the touch screens do not work correctly. This may include the following symptoms:

  • On a system that has two touch screens and no keyboard, touching the keyboard screen causes the mouse to move on the other screen, rather than on the keyboard screen.
  • The mouse cursor does not change from the mouse cursor to a dot cursor when you touch the screen.

WORKAROUND
To work around this issue, restart the computer.
STATUS
