Question about Dell Inspiron 1545 Notebook
I had this exact same problem (along with many others) on my 1545. It is because of the awkward position of the touchpad that the ends of the thumbs come across and touch it and move the cursor. This is actually a pretty common thing with other manufacturers too, but it's real bad with the 1545 series. I never did figure out a way to disable it within Windows by itself, I did figure out how to stop it by using third party software. If you download a program called "TouchFreeze" it disables the touchpad whenever you are typing.

On most laptops there is a function key that will lock the keyboard.
You would need to pres the [Fn] key and the appropriate [F#] key. In mine the combination
would be [Fn+F1] keys. If you shut down to re-activate the keyboard you will loose whatever you are working on.
hope this helps
