Default [Q] Touchscreen becomes unresponsive until restart

My touchscreen randomly it seems becomes unresponsive. Power button will turn the phone off and on, volume works. Just no touch. I restart the phone and it's fine. I am running touchcontrol perhaps thats it? I turned it off for now, I'm just playing the waiting game. Just wanted to see if anyone else had similar experiences with the N5.

are you using a custom kernel with s2w/dt2w enabled?

if so, that's your culprit. disable it

I'm not sure what kernel I'm using. I know it's as close to stock as possible. I disabled TouchControl and it hasn't had any issues since. I will look into those options you mentioned though as well just in case.
