BIOS 1.52 also seems to work, and apparently this issue was introduce somewhere around version 1.56-7. Assumably, 1.54-5 should work as well, though I didn't actually test those, so I can't confirm.
Hopefully this helps someone else who might be having this issue.
I've got an issue where the touchpad (nor the "nub" mouse, though I don't care much about that) aren't functioning at all on the first boot when coming up from being powered off completely.
The keyboard and touchscreen work fine, but in order for me to get the touchpad working I need to reboot the laptop. Fortunately I can reboot from the login screen, so it hasn't been a huge issue, but it's definitely an inconvenience. Coming up from a powered-off state the mouse won't work, but coming up from a reboot and it does.
I'm a bit afraid of disabling the touchscreen capabilities entirely (If that's even an option) as it may leave me with the issue where I wouldn't be able to reboot at all. Though, I currently rarely, if ever, actually use the touchscreen, so I woudn't be opposed to the idea if it could be done without leaving me mouse-less.
I can't say I've tried a whole lot to fix the issue, as a search of the issue has people talking about "My USB/PS2/etc mouse doesn't work on first boot," and I can't say I'm experienced enough with Linux to know where to start.
It's probably worth noting that Windows 8 is dual booted on this laptop, though on a separate partition. I've disabled Secure Boot as well.
I appreciate any help you could provide.
