Y560: Is there any way to disable the touchpad at bootup

I have a USB mouse attached at any time and do NOT want the touchpad to be activated after boot up, since it only causes problems when typing. The only way I found in the users guide is to manually disable it with Fn + F6. Only this is not permanent and with the next boot up or wake up the touchpad is turned on again.

 

Does anybody know a way to turn the touchpad off permanently.

 

I have a Y560 with Windows 7 and the Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad V7.4

I think you can disable it from device manager in windows.

Re: Disable Touchpad by Default

The problem has been disturbing me very much, but finally I have founded a solution.

I've received no help from lenovo and has tried to get it from the touchpad's manufacturer. My manufacturer is synaptics.com, I hope, yours too, cos the solution is manufacturer dependent.

I've downloaded from 'em Synaptics SDK V1.0, built the sample named "Disabler" and run "Disabler.exe DisableTouchPad".
It has worked !!!
Next, I've created a Window's task, that runs on every logon, which launches "Disabler.exe DisableTouchPad" command.
And now I'm happy ! )

I'm attaching "Disabler.exe", exported .xml with  Window's task configuration. You need to edit it according to your environment (change the path).

Key points of Window's task configuration:
    trigger = SessionUnlock
    specify path to "Disabler.exe" on your machine
    Also, set delay of the action to 1sec. Otherwise the disabling may not work.

You can enable your touchpad by double pressing "Fn+F6" (trigger touchpad state combination, it can vary).

Hope it will help you !!
