Mouse locking/turning off laptop

Sometimes when I start my laptop, the mousepad won't work...the light won't come on, the cursor's frozen in one spot on the screen and no amount of pressing the button will make it work. sometimes I can press the standby button and the light will come on and the mouse will then work...but when it doesn' do you turn the laptop off if you can't use the mouse? pressing the power on button only seems to make it hibernate..not turn off :(

Re: Mouse locking/turning off laptop

On your laptops power management settings, you will probably find an advanced tab. In there you should be able to assign the power button to 'Shutdown', as it is probably 'Hibernate' enabled. The mouse problem is probably your laptops touch pad driver, update drivers from Hewlett Packard site if there are any.

Looking at the keyboard I found a help key combination Fn-F1 which produced a menu listing several hot key combinations. One such combination was Fn-F7 which toggled the touchpad enabled/disabled.

Hey Gigantegenov!

Seems like the program that controls your special keys (volume control) causes your computer to freeze!

I would recommend reinstalling the drivers/application for it. Try this download and let me know what happened:

I accidentally locked my cursor. I'm in Word. I leaned (unwittingly) on my built-in mousepad, the little light in the NW corner of the "mousepad" went on, and locked the cursor. How do I unlock it?

Whats the model of your laptop, it may have a button combination to unlock the mouse, or even a single button that locks / unlocks it.

You could always plug an external USB mouse into it in the meantime.

What does the light indicate above the mouse pad on my HP Mini Netbook? It is red and after I start up the cursor does not respond to commands.

I am niot familiar with this particular model, but based on what i have seen with other HPs, that means your mousepad is locked, similar to the hold function on an ipod.

My cursor jumps when i am writting a text

The keyboard is built in a way so that it is easy to accidentally tap the mousepad while you are typing. This will make your cursor jump., if you are using an external mouse, make sure to turn off the mousepad to avoid this issue by holding Fn and pushing the F7 button.

Try to enter BIOS (press ESC on start up) and see if mousepad is set correctly.
Otherwise try to download updated drivers from Toshiba website.
