Go to C:\Program Files\Sony\Setting Utility Series and run VCCPointingDevice.exe. Untick the Enable checkbox and voila  this would disable the touchpad. You could create a shortcut to the file above for easy access!

To enable the touchpad you need to run the same executable and tick the Enable checkbox. You need to have an external mouse to move around and if you are a GNU-Linux freak, I guess you can make you way around without the mouse.

Or go to Start > All Programs > VAIO Control Center, Keyboard and Mouse and Pointing devices and disable it there. That is the official Sony method.
