I recently bought and installed a new notebook, however I have a weird problem that is hard to debug.

Sometimes, with increasing frequency, I find that I can't switch window, or I can't interact with the border of the window itself (while I can still interact with what's within).

I don't know what's triggering this, however the problem disappears when i switch to the console (ctrl+alt+F1) and back to the desktop (ctrl+alt+F7).

Also sometimes it seems that I get some random keypress on the right mouse button, since the menu is popping out. I think that this is related to some random "phantom" activation of the right mouse button somewhere. In the system logs I couldn't find any hint to this.

Can anyone help me debugging this?
Thanks

I run a stable gentoo, with kernel 5.3 (the only thing which is ~amd64) with xfce desktop
It's a Intel Core i7-9750H with an Nvidia card which is disabled through bbswitch (I only use the integrated Intel)

Solved! It was a defect of the touchpad cable that generated some electrical contact...
