Disable Touchpad by Default

I know the hotkey to disable the touchpad, however, I almost never use it. It would be much more convenient if the touchpad was disabled by default, and I used Fn+F6 to enable it. Is this possible? I am very comfortable with registry editing and other tweaks if that is the way to do it.

 

Thank you

I found this thread, but it permanently disables the touchpad. I'd like to be able to use it on occasion.
