Thinkpad Yoga touchpad pauses after typing (not Palmcheck)

2015-05-22, 16:35 PM

Well I lost my old user id after Lenovo implemented their superfluous Lenovo ID here in the forums, so this looks like my first post.

Problem is that after long stints of typing the touchpad acts as if Palmcheck is still enabled and won't move for a moment, though I've turned Palmcheck down to the minimum. It only happens after long periods of typing, and after that initial pause it doesn't happen for a good long while. Just one more annoyance in a long list of annoyances I have with this computer. Has anyone else experienced this?

You can link your old account like so:

There's a Windows 8 option for something very similar to PalmCheck:

Tried to link my old account, wouldn't work. Poor implementation. However, it looks like that Windows 8 option did the trick! Will report back if it didn't.

Scratch that. Problem persists. It really seems that the computer forgets that palmcheck is disabled from time to time.
