ideally, i would like for any mouseclicks and menu opening commands made within X microseconds of a keystroke to be discarded, with the user setting the value of X.

for the record, i'm working on a laptop (2730p) which has mousebuttons and menu buttons quite close to the typing keys, and i have on occassion overwritten entire paragraphs and somehow even issued a close program command while furiously typing. needless to say, i would like a fix for this.

Hi,

You can refer to the link which might help you:-

Also you can look into the manufacture's website for any key combination to enable/disable the touchpad.

Thanks and Regards

thanks deepa, but i found something more in line with my request called 'touchfreeze.' the best part is, there's even a version for linux (vista is giving me lots of problems)
