Touchpad not working after suspend on Ubuntu – grub solution

An annoying thing – my touchpad did not wake up after suspend when installing the newest Ubuntu version (currently 13.10). I had the same problem with 13.04 and probably 12.10, but I had forgotten what the solution was. To avoid some further search next time, the solutions mentioned in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-source-2.6.20/+bug/59867 works on my Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Si1520:

Found a permanent solution!

Edit /etc/default/grub
and change the line
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”quiet splash”
to
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”quiet splash atkbd.reset”

and run update-grub, reboot and when you press E in grub you will se the entry there.

UPDATE: Still the same problem has the same solution with the newest Ubuntu (14.04 LTS). Don’t forget the sudo update-grub command, otherwise the change is not effective.
