    Forgive me if it's in the archives. I tried to find something similar but couldn't

    I have a Lenovo T61p Thinkpad. I've disable the touchpad a ton of times and the dang thing keeps re-enabling itself and I can't determine why...
    Hardware drivers and software are up to to date. Microsoft Auto update enabled.

    Typical scenario:
    Go into mouse properts->UltraNav tab
    Uncheck "Enable TouchPad"

    System is then fine as long as it's used periodically. But it seems like after a prolonged period of inactivity - say overnight, the dang thing re-enables itself and I can't determine why. Sure enough, I go back to the UltraNav tab and that stupid box turning it on is checked again.

    No reboot, sleep, suspend, etc mode is required for this behavior to rear it's ugly head.

    TIA,
    Steve
