    You will have to uninstal the stock dell drivers(remove the dell touchpad or whatever it is named program), reboot and install the new ones.

    As for two-finger rightclicking it is mentioned just a few pages back in the thread twofingerscroll which is a google code program works excellent

    mine does this regularly, VERY annoying! If i let it sleep, it WILL wake up, and either drain the battery or if it's in a bag, drain the battery and run CRAZY HOT. So, I now only leave it to hibernate, not sleep. Annoying, but better than have it randomly wake up and overheat in a sleeve. There are no tasks scheduled, think it's a video driver issue, but no real idea.

    Why not?
    It doesn't really install, it's just an executable.

    he might be referring to the installer from scrybe that also installs multi-touch gestures

    I wish switching between IGP and Nvidia didn't require MSN Messenger to close. That is always on for me along with steam. But steam's new beta GUI took care of that. WHY IS MSN MESSENGER a barrier! ugh

    I wouldn't touch MS Messenger with a 10 foot pole. :) Pidgin for the win. Doesn't require closing when switching of course. ;)

    Beta GUI solved that? Good to know.
    Any problems with using the beta? I remember reading about some issues.

    Minimizing it works for me... seems it just doesn't like it when there is an active window being displayed.
