    I love this thing except when I type the thumb brushes touchpad which sends my next typed letter to wherever the cursor is! There is a FN button (F9) which is supposed to disable the touchpad -- but I have been unable to make that work. Any suggestions?

    I assume you have the synaptics stuff installed...
    did you uninstall/reinstall the ATK0100 drivers?

    Actually, you don't need the touchpad software installed... but rather you need the drivers installed to run the function keys.... it's on the drivers disk.
