Are you touching the touch pad while typing? I have done that before. That is why I switched to a regular mouse.

I've got a Dell and it does something similar. I'm a pretty fast typer and when I get going, it's almost like I type shortcuts to things like printing and emptying the recycle bin. It's a 3 months old with Vista, which I think is half the problem

Go to the icon for the touchpad in the taskbar or through device manager and set the sentivity for the touchpad to be less sensitive, my dell does the same thing and I had to play with the setting for a while to get it where I like it. Hope that helps.

You should be able to turn it off. Just get a small wireless mouse or trackball way better.
