Touchpad stops working after computer start-up

I have a Toshiba Satellite A665-S5170. Almost every time I start up my computer after having it off for the night, my touchpad doesn't work. Sometimes it'll be extremely jumpy, yet never working in the direction I want it to move, and sometimes it sticks in resize mode and just resizes everything instead of moving the mouse, and sometimes it stops responding completely. It always starts working normally again after being on for a few minutes, but until then, it doesn't work and it's extremely annoying. Any idea what's happening?

Re: Touchpad stops working after computer start-up

I have the same issue and I am using the Toshiba Satellite A665-S6086.  My touchpad is not consistent about when it does it.  There will be weeks at a time when it works fine and then it will go into a routine where if I came back from hibernation or a restart, the touchpad won't work.  It gets stuck on resizing the page or scroll from left to right.  I can't get the pointer to move.   This will especially happen if I open a web page browser.
