Hey, I recently got a new Dell Inspiron laptop (a month ago) and I'm starting to have really bad problems with the mousepad. It doesn't just turn off, and I haven't found my issue anywhere else.
Basically, every time I try to tap to click, the mousepad thinks I'm clicking and holding, even when I let go. The actual left and right click buttons still work, and so do the two-finger scroll and two-finger-tap (for right click) functions, it's only the single tap that's buggy. I've had this problem a few times and tried everything I could find, including modifying all my mousepad settings in the Control Panel and updating the drivers and checking the hardware settings, but none of it works. The only thing that has worked so far is completely rebooting the computer, but I'm getting a bit sick of doing that only for this to come back.
