Re: Acer Aspire 1315
Yes, this can be done by holding down the blueish FN button in most acer laptops this is in the left lower corner of the keyboard.
also while holding down the fn key you have to press the Touchpad button, its one of the buttons between F1 and F12 these buttons should have small blueish icons in them, One of them is the touchpad as this varies between laptops I would suggest you try them all untill you find the correct one which disables and enables the touchpad.
Let me know if you need anything else and if you got it sorted you can close the thread with a fixya rateing.
Good luck and feel free to ask me for further assistance.

Before trying to repair a perceived hardware fault in the Tractor/Touch Pad/Track Pad/Mouse, you should consider simply plugging a USB Mouse into one of the USB ports, to see if that works by restoring your control of the desktop.
Alternative explanations for these symptoms include malware infections that have disabled your active desktop or a corruption of the Tractor/Track Pad/Touch Pad/Mouse Drivers. Try downloading, installing and purging any infection with Anti Malwarebytes, available free from:
another issue could be Driver conflict or corruption. Try uninstalling all components of the drivers from add or Remove Programs or its equivalent in your Operating System and then restarting the notebook with the USB Mouse still connected and then reinstalling the relevant drivers from the Driver CD or downloading and installing the from the Support pages of the Acer website:
Has the mouse lock been applied. Press and hold the "FN" key and then press "F9" this should unlock the mouse and touch pad. Failing that try updating the drivers for both using the device manager as I have found that recent updates have disabled my touch pad and I have rolled back the drivers to the previous ones.
There are many possible fixes. To do some forensic work it would be best to know what was going on when the touch pad stopped working. It could very easily be the driver. You can see if that's it in device manager. Locate your touch pad device there and right-click on the device, choose "update driver".
Some laptops, my Toshiba for instance, have an option to configure the touchpad to disable when it senses a USB mouse or keyboard connecting. I have mine set to disable because when I'm typing on the onboard keyboard and I accidently slightly brush the touchpad, it sends the cursor all over the page and usually I lose everything I just typed.
The problem might also be a matter of a bogus setting in the Service Manager. There are a number of services that are related to your touchpad or mouse.
if you take a hard look at your laptop you'll probably find a key that to disable keyboard that with fn will do it
what type of laptop and model
also check in control panel mouse then device settings see if you disabled in there
