With some laptops you can disable touchpad by pressing function keys like Fn + F9 keys.

One of my laptops has a little On/Off toggle near the top right corner of the touchpad.

 

On another one, I simply cut a piece of card stock (thick paper) just the right size to fit down into the touchpad recess to cover it up.

 

(Whenever I can I use a mouse instead of a touchpad. Old habits ...).
