    Instead of disabling the hot corners go into your mouse/track pad settings and turn off the edge swipes. The edge swipes were driving me batty on my laptop. The charms bar was always coming up as I would slide my finger across the palm rest to find the track pad without looking. Now if I do actually want the charms bar I just use the hot corner to find it.
