I am trying Linux Mint Nadia on an HP tx1000 and would like to disable the touchpad. I have a wireless USB mouse that works great but I can't use the keyboard without my big fat palms hitting the touchpad. I am hoping for a disable/enable capability like newer laptops.

You can also enable "palm detection" in gpointing-device-settings (you can get that program from the repository). Also, many laptops including my HP have a touchpad on/off button, or an Fn key combination to turn off the touchpad.
