Sometimes a 'stumble' prevents a fall. I had my new ASUS F500LA fliptop only 4 days when the touchscreen quit Frantic searches turned up zilch. Then I 'stumbled' upon your pose. It saved a long and agnazing phone call to tech support.

Just one more tip to place in the ever expanding bag of tips.

Thanks

"...I finally stumbled upon the solutions to both forms of touch screen failure - the failure upon closing the lid and more semi-permanent failure - are both caused by simple, stupid bugs arising from the particular combination of Asus' touch screen interface design and Windows' USB power management algorithms. If your touch screen is going out when you close the lid, you probably have set the computer's power settings so that it "does nothing" upon closing the lid. Changing this setting to "sleep" - after first restoring touch functionality, of course - fixed the problem instantly and permanently for me, though this will probably only work if you first go into the Windows Device Manager and find the touch screen device - it's a "USB Input Device" under the "Human Interface Devices" heading - right click and go to "Properties", go to the "Power Management" tab, and uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". The more permanent-seeming touch screen failure was instantly resolved by disabling the "USB Selective Suspend" feature in the power settings and cold-booting. So if you're having touch screen problems, chances are excellent that your touch screen is actually fine, and all you need to do is change all the settings as I've indicated here, cold-booting first if necessary to bring the touch screen back to life before you start. Hope this helps someone! "[/quotemsg]

thanks for this solution. I've been without my tablet, which i purchased for school and went 100% ebook for my texts, for almost the whole semester. Finals coming up, and I NEEDED it. Searched for all sorts of problems, but seems everyone describes a different sort of touch screen issue. Mine, was anywhere from 10 seconds to 5 minutes into use, it would freeze everything, no touch screen, no keyboard, no mouse, nothing. Completely frozen on whatever I was doing from what I could tell. I actually gave a presentation using the frozen screen showing the new apple watch it froze on as a visual aid.
Anyway, I found the settings to uncheck the box for allowing windows to turn that device off to save power. Well, there were 3 different usb devices as described, so I unchecked all 3. if it uses more battery because of it, well 10-15 hours is already uncomparable to my toshiba getting 2-3 hrs. All works just perfectly now. Thank you so much again!!

I just went into Device Manager, found the device, clicked Properties, and clicked on OK.
That DEFINITELY worked but none of your suggestions did :).
Hope that helped...
