What is the easiest way to disable the touch pad on a laptop?
I have a laptop which lacks a means to turn off the touchpad with a simple Function key sequence. I would like to disable the touchpad so that it stops detecting movement when I am typing. This is quite an annoyance as it sometimes results in deletions of sections of a sentence I am typing. Right now I have a thick piece of paper over the top to decrease the sensitivity.
Any other suggestions on how to do this?
