You can set pointer trails in Control Panel, Mouse and (in the same place) you can hide the pointer while typing (varied effectiveness in my experience), but you cannot turn off the pointer so far as I know. It would be a pain to find it if you succeed in turning it off.

You could only resort to a custom pointer icon (.cur file, can be created by various programs like http://www.rw-designer.com/cursor-maker ). Use an icon made of a single pixel.
However, even with trails on, will you find it? Yes you will, you can use the CTRL-Key-highlights-the-pointer-position-feature. Also, you can use the option "snap to", so you will have no problems to handle dialogues.
