Thinkpad X1 Extreme trackpoint activates the cursor while I am typing

2019-06-25, 11:22 AM

I was recently given a brand new Thinkpad X1 Extreme. The problem is that the cursor is moving diagonally from the bottom left to the upper right corners  (or parallel lines of this one) while I am typing.


The movement is clearly activated when I press keys around the trackpoint (G, H, B) and especially H. The cursos most of the times will stop moving if I press again H. 


I need to solve this:


1. I tried TouchFreeze but this deactivates only the touchpad when typing. 


2. Is it possible to just deactivate the red trackpoint without deactivating the two physical buttons? I need these buttons.


3. Is there some other software solution?


I would appreciate any help.

You could try pulling the little red button off if you never use it. The remaining post would not be affected by the adjacent keys. If you still wanted the rubber button, maybe you could trim it down with scissors... Kinda hacky, but could work.
