    It's a Human Interface Device. Since it sounds like you're using a laptop, do you have an F-key that doubles as a switch to turn off the touchpad? Mine, for example, has the touchpad icon on F9 and if i hold the Fn key and hit F9, it turns off my touchpad.

    Double tap top left corner of your touchpad to disable it. Double tap that region again to enable it.
