I am helping a friend with a new Dell Inspiron 5150 notebook. As we move through the various screens it often seems that if the cursor is left over (hovered over) a box or control button (Okay or SaveAs or X to close window) for some amount of time the box is assumed to be clicked. Often this is not ourintention - we are still reading the rest of the control box or thinking about what to do. I have never seen this behavior in my XP desktop installation.
Is this something unique to notebook installations?
Is there a switch to turn it off?
