...and you try to move the pointer, but it seems stuck - your heart sinks as you're convinced everything has locked up - you start to think of all the work you've lost... was just going to save it, honestly. Maybe REISUB will work, maybe it'll be OK in a minute.

You then look down and realise that all that happened was you missed the Touchpad with your fingers... panic over ;)

Sound familiar?
