ibook cursor vanishes

Annoying problem I am having with my ibook G4. The cursor arrow frequently gets "stuck" or sometimes the cursor vanishes completely. "Esc" or "F12" or "sleep & wake up" would solve the problem. Very annoying though....

Apple service centre tried something with the trackpad (they say) but the problem is back within a week......

Please advise....... Please help......

I had a problem like that a couple days ago, my cursor would all of a sudden vanish from the screen but the computer would still recognize it (if you hover over buttons they will light up, etc.) It has not happened since then, but it was really weird.
