Bug description:
  Using Asus N43SL laptop as an example, with nvidia-prime installed, so
  the dedicated NVIDIA graphics card (GT 540m) is in use, once in a
  while, my screen will freeze when I use my touchpad.

  WORKAROUND: Use USB mouse.

  WORKAROUND: Do a VT switch via Ctrl+Alt+F1 then Ctrl+Alt+F7.
