Asus Smart Gesture Not Working After Sleep Mode on Windows 8

Recently i started to use the sleep mode often as i’m more and more working with my Asus UX32VD ultrabook. What i liked from sleep mode is i can left open the windows applications that i’m working with and continue later with it still opened, so i can quickly continue my work.

However i began noticing that randomly the touch pad of my ultrabook start to be activated although i already set it to be automatically disabled when i attach my bluetooth mouse.

When it does activated, strangely i can’t do scrolling with two fingers gesture or scrolling on the side of the touch pad. Wanting for quick solution of course i’ll just restart my ultrabook and the touchpad will work again. But then it happens quite often if i set my ultrabook on sleep mode again and again, which quite annoying.

After some times i noticed that when the problem happens i didn’t see the touchpad icon on my notification bar. Although i did saw Asus Smart Gesture Center on my running application on the Task Manager, but it seems to be hang, see below:

The solution is to “end task” the Asus Smart Gesture Center and it will automatically restarted, afterwards the touch pad will work normally again. You’ll also see the touch pad icon again on the notification bar.

Solution for Asus Zenbook UX32VD fan issue

I love my Asus Zenbook UX32VD because of its nice design, dedicated graphic card, full HD screen and upgradeable RAM and HDD. I have upgraded my UX32VD with additional RAM so it has 10GB of RAM, replace its HDD with a Samsung 830 SSD and do a fresh install of Windows 8.

Everything went perfect and smooth, Windows 8 installed fresh without problem. It took me several hours to figure out all drivers needed to be installed so there is no ‘unknown’ devices on Control Panel device management without the need of installing all Asus software crap.

Now, as many UX32VD owners I also had a problem with the fan goes “on off, on off” every 2 seconds or so. The fans goes on when the processor/GPU temperature reach on 50 celsius and goes off when the temperature reach around 45 celsius which is a very short range. 50 celsius is easily reached when you browse a website, then the fans kicks in and when your browser finished loading the page, the fans goes off.
