I am having this weird issue on my Dell XPS 15 9570 where the touchscreen doesn't work after I close the lid. If I reboot, the touchscreen works just fine, but as soon as I close it, it ceases to work. This happened after I updated to the latest BIOS, but I'm unsure whether this is the issue or not. I already reinstalled Windows, so that's not the problem. This is a very annoying issue, especially considering that I bought the more expensive model for the touchscreen. Any help is appreciated! If you know of a solution, please reply to this post or DM me on Discord at Topik#0001
Solved! Go to Solution.
Dell just released BIOS 1.5.0, and one of the fixes is the "Fixed the issue with touch screen where it malfunctions after closing and opening the lid". I think SupportAssist and Dell Update are always a bit late to offer the newest updates.
Thanks for posting. Apologies that your system is not performing as expected.
Unfortunately your post does not indicate whether or not you've updated your BIOS or run SupportAssist.
Please run the Dell SupportAssist , make a note of any error messages encountered and post back. Also, in the BIOS there is a setting called USB Wake Support. Some users have reported success by turning this to the off position.

I'm pretty sure that the other users are referring to their touch displays and not their mouse touchpads...
I don't think your knowledge base links are relevant here.
Did you ever fix your touch display not working? What BIOS version are you on?
I see this in the release notes of the latest version of the BIOS that I have to download. See point 2:
