Best term I could think of. I have a detachable mouse hooked up to a USB port, and have the computer's mouse touchpad turned off. The mouse has a fresh battery. Basically, you can still move the mouse with the touchpad as well as other problems. Without even touching the mouse pad, the cursor has a tendancy to just miraculously move to somewhere else on the desktop which leads to me typing stuff in various places when typing threads here or on any program that you type in(Word, excel, etc.). Also, without touching the pad or the enter key, whatever I am working in just acts like I did hit enter. I have had it happen posting on GT where the post would just be entered while I was typing. Either that or deleted. So, is my laptop possessed!!LOL Am I just an idiot and have something turned on, or rather not turned off, that needs to be. I havent been able to locate any adjustment, but then again I am still learning Windows 7.
