    When you dock the transformer is there a way to disable the touchpad? I can not type on it with out accidently moving the mouse!

    I don't have my dock with me at work, but I am sure its one of the first few keys on the top left of the dock, maybe 3 or 4 along from the left. Hit that and the trackpad is disabled.

    Its a key with a square logo.

    It's the key right above the 3 on the keyboard dock.

    does anyone know how to keep the touch pad working but disable from clicking on something just by touching it. I keep opening up windows I am not trying to.

    Not really, it's just pretty sensitive like that. I lift my hands when I'm typing so as not to touch it accidentally.

    I'm also getting pretty good at whipping a finger up to the touchpad toggle key and toggling back and forth.

    I called Asus about this. You can turn it off, but they said you can't otherwise adjust it. They said that it was pre-set "optimally". Optimal for them may not be optimal for everyone else. However. with the keyboard and touch screen I can do without it.

    You could get a rooted ROM built that would act differently..
