Dear all,

I have a question, I have a problem:

I would like to disable the touchpad of my laptop when the mouse is 
connected. So, I thought of doing my own script that runs on startup and 
would do that. As far as I know, this can be done by rmmod-ing the 
module that takes care of the touchpad. The problem is I don't know 
which one it is (attached you can find my lsmod) and I would need your 
help with this. If this is not possible via rmmod, could you suggest 
another method (since my laptop is rather dumb and does not have a 
disable touchpad key)?
