Hi- I used to have a travelmate 4200 (before the lightning storm), and when I turned the touchpad off using FN-F7 it stayed off until I enabled it again. This 5720, I have to disable the touchpad every time I boot up, which, while only a minor annoyance is an annoyance nevertheless.

Acer support was no help, I wondered if anyone here could help out? Thanks!
