Cursor freezes after being left inactive

I have a dell xps 9370 which is running kernel 5.9.1, Plasma 5.21.3. My touchpad randomly stops working after brief periods of inactivity. I need to restart my laptop and then everything is just fine. I can still do stuff using my key board and type and everything, it’s just that the touch pad doesn’t work. How do I fix this? Please let me know if I need to share outputs of certain commands. It has become really annoying to restart my computer after 30 mins of activity! Thank you.

Hello, I am having the same issue (lenovo ideapad 5). Did you manage to resolve the problem?

Hey! Yes, I did a system upgrade and switched to a LTS kernel. Hope this helps!
