    little help on my powerbook
    How can I disable touch pad? I know some pc notebooks have a little button near by their touch pad to disable its function while using mouse.

    Also, one of the best pieces of advice I can give any new Mac user is to take advantage of the "Help" feature. It contains an amazing amount of information and is very user-friendly. The chances are good that you will find some sort of answer there for most questions that you might have.

    Well, I tried that, but my trackpad still works while my mouse is connected to my powerbook. (This was the reason I asked you guys.) By the way, do you think because I am using a third party mouse, logitech?
