Touch Lamp Won't Work in All Outlets?

I have a touch lamp that previously worked in my daughters' bedroom. It went out so I had a new switch put in from a lamp repair shop. Now it works in every outlet except the 2 upstairs bedrooms! Other things work in the outlets (iPod dock, video monitor cameras, sewing machine), but the lamp doesn't! It's so strange because the lamp works in other rooms in the house. Any thoughts on this?

The touch switch works on capacitance of the human body interfering with the electric field set up by the control box inside the lamp.

Human capacitance can vary with surroundings, causing the lamp to work in some rooms and not in others.

The sensitivity of the switch can usually be adjusted. I would start by returning to the lamp repair shop and asking for the switch to be made more sensitive because it is not always working.
