Touchpad driving me nuts

    OK, for the most part I'm pretty happy with the transformer, but I have on issue. I keep accidentally clicking by tapping the touchpad with my thumbs while i'm typing. Most laptops disable the touchpad while you're typing automatically, but the TF doesn't seem to do anything like that. Is there any way to disable the clicking by tapping function? I certainly can't find it.

    There is a way to disable the touch pad. Hold down the <Fn> key and press the key above the 3. You will see an image on the screen that tells you the touch pad is disabled. Do it again to toggle it back on.

    Awesome, thanks. It looks like you don't even have to hold the fn key. Is there a difference that you know of?

    Lol. I've been pressing the Fn key all this time when I didn't need to.

    i just joined up to say thank you.. asus customer service apparently has the night off, and the touchpad on my new tf keyboard was making typing miserable, not for the above reason, but because the cursor would slide back and insert what i was typing in the middle of the previous sentence or worse. problem solved.. now i just have to find out if the browser HAS to occupy the entire screen. damned if i can figure out a way to minimize it to partial.

    Depending on what you're trying to do, you can use a browser called dualweb. It still takes up the whole screen, but it allows you to see two tabs side by side. Handy if you're wanting to look at two websites. Not so much if you're wanting to read a website and use another program at the same time.

    yeah well i just turn off the touch pad off using the dedicated button right of the bluetooth one (defo dont need the fn key for that) found that it was my palms sending the freaking cursor to some random point on the screen all the time. but i get used to it switching off and on the touch pad as i just use the touch screen if i need to get to a certain point on the screen...
