If I put my machine in Stand By mode and then resume, the Synaptics Touchpad re-enables itself (it was disabled before going into Stand By).
What makes this worse is that sometimes, after the machine resumes, when I push on the button above the touchpad to disable it, it does not respond. Like it's busted. If I give it a few minutes and try again, then it will disable the touchpad.
Is there a way to permanently disable the touchpad?
FYI - I already know that I can go into the Control Panel, select Mouse Properties, and then Device Settings, and Disable the Synaptics Touchpad. The problem is that this is not permanent - the thing still re-enables itself after resuming from Stand By.
Thanks in advance.
