Is there any way to permanently disable my touchpad?
Whenever my touchpad is enabled, the mouse pointer moves around and clicks when I type because my arms are near to or graze the touchpad. I've seen My mouse clicks when I rest my wrist next to the trackpad.. and I know this is apparently due to battery swell, but I don't care about the reason, I just want to permanently disable my touchpad.
I do know about the option to automatically disable the touchpad whenever an external mouse is plugged in, but the problem is that it's constantly 'forgetting' that the mouse is plugged in and I have to unplug it and re-plug it in multiple times a day just to remind the system to disable the touchpad. This is highly annoying. I want to just flat-out disable it. I've tried uninstalling the driver for it, but it just automatically reinstalls itself.
Thanks for any help.
