    Default how to turn off the touchpad when using mouse

    hello,

    I am using a LS 50a. everything is fine except that

    when I use the mouse, my hand also touch the touchpad occasionally which cause my pointer to move in a way that is unexpected.

    is there a way I could turn off the touchpad when I use the mouse?

    You may want to check the BIOS to see if there's an option for pointing devices. I think it's something like Simultaneous Pointing Devices or something to that effect. Just enable/disable this feature and when an external mouse is connected, the glidepad should auto disable.

    You probably have a manual function key for it as well, mine is FN + F4.

    If you are using the LS50 then the way to disable the mousepad is by pressing, Fn+F5 that should disable the touch pad.

    There you go, I thought there would be a dedicated key for it.

    On my T1, when i open the options for the onscreen display program, there is an option to automatically disable the touchpad when an external mouse is plugged in.
