Touchpad cursor disappears and is unresponsive. (Lenovo Yoga 720, Windows 10)

Touchpad cursor disappeared after sleep mode.  Extremely frustrating but finally found the fix.

Upgrade the BIOS UEFI from older 5GCN18WW  to  newer 5GCN20WW:
 

Go to Lenovo Support > Drivers & Software (Get Downloads) > enter serial number >

scroll down and click on BIOS/UEFI > click on the eye icon under Summary > 

click on Download BIOS Update > run the .exe file downloaded > restart the laptop

SOLUTION: for the Yoga 720 12ikb


Problem: after sleep, windows pointer from touchpad dissapears and will not reappear


in your apps should be "Lenovo Vantage" start it;

--System Update: click on "Download and Install Lenovo Updates for Your Device"

-- Check for updates


1st recommended update was the driver: Elan Touchpad IAP for Yoga 720 Win10[64] v1.0.0.3

installed, rebooted


Problem not solved, so started Lenovo Vantage again, .... this time a Bios Update was suggested.

--Install, reboot


Problem solved.,or at this early stage it appears so!  ..... you mileage may vary
