Question about Toshiba Satellite P105-S6104 Notebook
The program that controls the functions on the pad is called Synaptics. If the small red Icon does not show on your task bar, you can find it in program files. I had the same issue and turned it off. I forgot how I had done it so it took me a while to remember where to go to turn it back on. Right click the icon and go to properties. Then go to device settings and you can disable it or change settings however you like. Hope this helps you.

Some laptops don't have dedicated buttons but you can use Function keys (like Fn + F5 on Dell computers) to toggle the state of your touch pad. In the case of HP laptops, you can hold the top-left corner of the touchpad for few seconds and it will disable the touch pad - repeat this to re-activate it.
New laptop computers either have a physical on/off button to easily disable the touch pad or there's an icon in the system tray that lets you manage the various settings of the touchpad. If you don't have that icon, you can go to Control Panel -> Mouse Properties -> Touch Pad to enable or disable the touchpad.
The touch pad can also be disabled through the device manager. Type devmgmt.msc in the Windows Run box to start the device manager, expand "Mice and other Pointing devices", right-click and disable the driver entry that says Touch pad or likewise.
Hope this information will help.
