1.  FN+F9 toggles the TouchPad on/off.

 

2.  The specs for your machine indicates you have a on/off switch.  It is very small, same color as the keyboard bezel and located in the keyboard bezel between the center of the TouchPad and the Space key.  Pushing it also toggles the TouchPad on/off.

 

3.  If you use an external USB mouse, you can set the mouse settings to turn the TouchPad off when the external USB mouse is connected.  See Control Panel--Mouse--Device Settings--Put a check in the box about mid-way in the window.

The specs are wrong!

You mean like on Vista or XP do you always insult people? you act like no one knows this well you don't, so I will explain this to you OK, you cannot turn off or disable the pad thru this the disabled button is not active with 7, Also you cannot uninstall it thru device manager because 7 just reinstalls it!!!

 

any other bright ideas?

ALL of the above works on my Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 machines.

 

No! I don't have any more bright ideas!
