    Hi everyone,
    I've had my EP121 for a few weeks now.
    Really enjoying it so far.

    A couple of weeks ago, something weird started happening.

    Everything works fine, and then suddenly the touchscreen would start clicking by itself... The pointer looks like it's on the upper right or lower right side of the screen, and it's clicking and/or right clicking by itself.

    I've been able to fix this by putting the EP121 to sleep mode using the power slider, and then turning it back on. The issue comes back a little while later (sometimes soon, sometimes in 1-2 days).

    I've updated drivers, done the Windows updates, tried rolling back Windows, running virus scan, and nothing has worked.

    Anyone else encountering similar issues?

    Any other ideas on how to fix this?

    Thanks for your help!

    I've seen this happen, but at the bottom of the screen. Only seen it twice, and a restart fixed it.

    No idea what causes it. Might be something to do with a pen/touch crossover...

    Thanks for your replies.

    More info below:

    1. I just reset my calibration data to see if it helps...

    2. I downloaded and installed the Wacom enhanced driver after the problem started. How can I verify that I'm currently using the Wacom enhanced driver?

    3. three_pineapples: Interesting that you've seen this problem as well... Now I don't feel like I'm going crazy or that my tablet is haunted. :)

    Thanks for all your help!

    It only happened to me when theres an alien flying saucer hovering on top of my roof, the electromagnetic pulse generator produce by the craft will caused the the touchscreen to act strangely.

    I experienced it once & it was crazy, I thought the origami experience pack UI I was using caused it, obviously I was wrong. Anyway a restart solved it & haven't seen it again & still using the Microsoft origami now ui

    Just like others I've seen it happen once and a restart solved it. Yes, I believe it was aliens like r2-d2.

    This hasn't happened for a few hours now, and I'm crossing my fingers...

    I've also set up a flying saucer deflector on top of my roof, just in case...

    Arrrgh! It's happening again!

    After posting my last message, I put the tablet in sleep mode.

    I came back after 25 minutes later, turn it back on, and the upper-right corner clicking thing started again... It went crazy and closed a bunch of windows. I thought I got rid of it after restarting it once, and it came right back...

    This is getting super annoying. Would love to get to the bottom of this!
