    , about the only thing it can't do is shut the PC down directly.
    if I understand you correctly ,set the power button to shutdown
    I've done that on my keyboard. The touchpad doesn't have any buttons on it. Just an on off switch for it to save batteries when your not using it.

    My laptop touchpad doesn't have buttons. Have you tried pressing the left/right bottom corners? I don't use the left-click; I double-tap for my left-click and double-tap/drag on an item to move stuff.

    My laptop (ASUS) touchpad has buttons hidden under the bottom corners. You can press down and right or left click. I have the power button set to shutdown on the laptop.
    This touchpad that I'm using on my desktop PC (Logitech T650) has no buttons what so ever. To right click you tap in the lower right corner. I have no issues with it. It works the way it was intended to work.
    I probably shouldn't have mentioned it at all, as its just causing some confusion.
