Hello..a couple suggestions here unless some one posts an exact fix.
Have you updated the Synaptics driver for the touchpad?
Try to either uninstall the Synaptics software and use the built-in windows mouse driver or change the Synaptics settings for the pointer for Heavy Touch.
Staying Updated Calendar of Updates.

I would uninstall the Synaptic drivers...via Device Manager....then reboot.
The drivers may be damaged and unable to properly respond.

Go to Device Manager/Mice and Other Pointing Devices...that's where my Samsung laptop reflects the touchpad driver/hardware.
Synaptics provides the technology for such for many OEMs...that's why many of us make a general reference to "synaptics" as being equivalent to "touchpad".
If you have anything other than a mouse reflected in that category...uninstall the drivers, then reboot.

They are 2 separate devices with different drivers. Uninstalling the drivers for one will not mess up the other one.
You need to do as suggested and uninstall the laptop touchpad drivers. Reboot. Windows will see it as new hardware and install the drivers.
Synaptics, when installed, gives you a program which lets you control touchpad functions such as 2 finger scrolling, pinch zoom, tapping, etc. (these can all be disabled).

Can you use your touchpad? If so, unplug the wired mouse (or wireless transceiver if you have a wireless mouse), go to device manager and see what is listed under Mice and pointing devices.
Can you explain what you mean by drifts when idle? Are your hands on your keyboard positioned in a way that you could accidentally be moving them on the touchpad, which would cause the cursor to move?
