    How to enable use of the touchpad while typing

    On my Dell Alienware m14x it seems that I can not find a way to disable the feature that enables a delay between the time you can click or move on the touchpad to when you can press a key. Meaning, if I quickly stop typing and attempt to move my touchpad, I must wait a couple of seconds before my touchpad enables itself again. Very annoying. This feature was added to stop people from accidently pressing the pad while typing.

    Touchpads are always enabled all of the time. If it is a Synaptics Touchpad, you can tweak the various settings.

    My touchpad gets disabled when I am typing. After I stop pressing a keys, wait one moment, it activates again. I am trying to figure out some way to keep it active all the time even when keys are being pressed.
