1000HG - keyboard shortcut to turn off/on touchpad?

Also, Fn + F4 does screen resolution, Fn + Space does the Super Hybris Engine modes.
I think it was the ACPI driver that controls that, but i could be wrong.

Does anyone know if the ACPI does the touchpad like Eeetastic thinks? If it does, where can I get it and does anyone think there would be any issues in putting a program designed for 1000HE on a 1000HG? I'm just really amazed that it and the other FN keys were dropped off on this model - why? Not like the key is being used for anything else.
Thanks heaps for all the help, assistance and advice. I love these little eee pcs!

So getting back to other possibilities, do you have Synaptic or Elantech drivers installed?
You may only have the basic drivers and that would explain why you don't have the options in the registry. The 1000HE used Elantech but you'll have to test whether your 1000HG can use the same or may need the Synaptic drivers instead. Either one should give you options for disabling the touchpad and once you find them you can make a script and then create a keyboard shortcut for it.

Takes a few extra steps, instead of a simple key combination, but works.
But you may find a better option in this topic, http://forum.eeeuser....php?pid=398137

It's really starting to look like it can't be done on the 1000HG :( Come on Asus, surely this can be done some how!?
