Hey There, New guy here

I got a problem with Kali Linux on my old Gateway M230E. When ever I put it to sleep and resume later on, the trackpad is disabled. Happens every time I sleep/resume with it, got to use the keys to navigate to the reboot. Any suggestions on how to fix it? This is literally the only issue that's keeping me on Windows and not Kali full time.

I'd also like to ask if I could possible get the touch screen working as well but I don't know where to start. I can live without it though.

Appreciate it guys
