Hi
Acer es1-311

Screen is switching off after 1-2 seconds after waking it.
So i move a mouse touchpad, screen turns on, but the switch off. I move touch pad again, it becomes on, but switch off again after 1-2 seconds.

What could be the cause?

Ps: if i wake it up by pressing a key, it stays on.
So it is only mouse touch pad that makes screen go off

Pps: moise touch pad was buggy for long time, meaning often it got stuck for 5 -10 seconds.
So i had to use mouse and not touch pad.

So maybe touch pad being "broken" has to do something with it deactivating the screen?

However it was broken for years and only today i got this screen issue.

Funny thing, it went to update windows and it got back to normal.

But most shocking - this update fixed my track pad. For the last 2 years it was broken (getting stuck every 5 seconds for 5-10 seconds).
I thought it might have been some water damage.

Turns out it was a software bug. Wow. For 2 years! And windows had updates during those years.
