    How do I fix the touchpad and mouse pointer that repeatedly freeze on my new Galaxy TabPro S, even after a restart?

    It doesn't seem to be caused by any particular program. It is usually fixed, temporarily, by folding the screen down in sleep mode. Sometimes it seems to be fixed for a day or two, then it freezes again.
