I'm wanting to know how to disable the touch screen when the lid is closed. I have recently purchased a windows 8 computer with a touchscreen. The problem is that when the display is closed, the touch screen recognizes input from the keyboard or something and begins typing a password in, I can hear it typing when the sound is on and it is very annoying. I can't find a simple solution to this through my google searches. So I was curious as to if anyone knew a script, or how to write one, for disabling the touchscreen when the lid's closed. I have not been able to find a setting anywhere for doing so, or even disabling the touch screen. I could just have it go to sleep every time the lid is closed like the factory defaults, but that doesn't help when I'm downloading a large file and would like to keep my screen off and closed while I am gone. The laptop in question is, if it matters, this one: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+Ultrabook+13.3%22+Touch-Screen+Laptop+-+4GB+Memory+-+128GB+Solid+State+Drive+-+Radiant+Black/6906246.p?id=1218812711231&skuId=6906246
Also, this is the second one I've had, dead pixel on the first, and they have both done this.
I did a test to see what keys it would type with notepad open and the on screen keyboard up as requested by someone in the comments and this is the result:
