I love this site!! I have an IBM ThinkPad T41p with a built in IBM UltraNav touchpad. I'm running Windows XP Professional. My problem is that finger movements on my touchpad correspond to cursor movements that are way too short.
In other words, imagine my cursor starts on the bottom left corner of my screen (the laptop's screen - I don't have an external monitor hooked up or anything like that). I place my finger on the bottom left corner of the touchpad. I now move my finger on the touchpad from the bottom left corner of the touchpad up to the top left corner of the touchpad. If I move my finger very quickly, the cursor only moves up a little less than 1/3 of the full height of the screen! If I move my finger slowly, the cursor only moves up a little less than a 1/5 of the screen!! My screen's height is about 8 1/2".
I tried fiddling with the cursor movement sensitivities in Control Settings, but the UltraNav doesn't seem to have this capability (all you can do is make it more sensitive to taps, but the movement doesn't change). This seems like a minor issue, but it can be real pain and seriously slow you down when you're trying to work fast on the laptop and need to jump around the screen a lot. I don't have this problem with the mice I use - just with the touchpad (regardless of whether a mouse is plugged in or not).
I'd appreciate any advice? Thanks in advance!
