Touchpad problem after reboot

Whenever I do a warm reboot on my laptop (without powering off the system) from Linux (FC5) and boot into WinXP, the touchpad no longer responds to tap-clicks. I can still move the cursor and click using the touchpad buttons. If I power off the whole system and switch it back on, the touchpad is back to normal.

I'm suspecting that Linux isn't somehow resetting the hardware properly.

This isn't really too much of a problem, but has anyone else had this problem and does anyone a solution?

Have you set the synaptics driver in your xorg.conf?

Code: [ Select ]
Section "InputDevice"
  Identifier "Synaptics"
  Driver   "synaptics"
  Option   "Device"     "/dev/input/mice"
  Option   "Protocol"    "auto-dev"
  Option   "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
  Option   "SHMConfig"    "on"       # insert this line
  1. Section "InputDevice"
  2.   Identifier "Synaptics"
  3.   Driver   "synaptics"
  4.   Option   "Device"     "/dev/input/mice"
  5.   Option   "Protocol"    "auto-dev"
  6.   Option   "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"
  7.   Option   "SHMConfig"    "on"       # insert this line
