missing pointer

I am using my daughter's old laptop with a wireless mouse. When I wake up the desktop from sleep mode, the pointer is 'invisible'. If I hover over an icon I can see a highlight where the pointer should be, so when I left click the pointer becomes visible. I have discovered that a work-around is if I leave open the last web page that I am viewing and close the lid, the mouse is present when I open up again. Is it necessary to close all web pages before closing the lid as it seems that the pointer only vanishes when opening up to the desktop?
