On my mother's windows 2000 laptop before she bought it, there was a touchpad installed on the laptop. We use the touchpad, however there is that little button in the keyboard that also moves the mouse. Is there any way to stop the mouse in the keyboard to stop working and let the touchpad work only? :)

to my knowledge there's no real way to disable the little mouse nubbin on the keyboard of most computers (you could dig around in the "mouse" area in control panel and see if your's has an option)....i've never actually seen that nubbin be a problem...usually people have to disable the touch pad because they hit it when they type....i've never accidentally touched the little mouseamajig in the middle....it's hard enough to actually get it to work when you WANT to use it....

is this actually an issue for you guys? if it's a MAJOR issue and there's little probability of it ever being used you could see about removing it from the keyboard (at your own risk) they're usually made of soft rubber...you could cut it out with an exacto knife or remove the keyboard and some of the keys and try to remove it completely
