[access-uk] Re: Switching off the screen on a netbook (nc10)

Well, we can switch off the touchpad and (seemingly) the mouse controls, but Jaws still works!

Hi Andy.

Well, I've been playing around in the control panel, trying to find
out how to disable the mouse for you.  As I suspected, because the
mouse is something you wouldn't want to disable as it would be akin
to disabling the keyboard *smile*, you are probably best off reducing
the sensitivity as touch pads can be quite sensitive to even the
slightest touch which I suspect is happening in your case.  If your
using Synaptics Touchpad mouse control centre, you will find an
option in there, but if its windows mouse support, I'm not entirely
sure.

Because on my Asus, the touchpad is immediately below the space bar,
and is quite sensitive to even a gentle touch!So, if I don't hold my
wrists high enough, or allow my thumbs to be too horizontal, I can
find myself in another window than the one I was working in <smile>
and anyway, I don't use it, so it would be quite good if there was a
hot key to turn it off or back on in the event of a sighted person
needing it! - Andy

Hi Andy.

Why would you want to disable the mouse? *grin*.  I think you can
but I'd need to look it up as its not something I'd do personally
haha. ----- Original Message -----

Ok, but is there a way to turn off the touchpad, in my case, this
is for an Asus netbook -

There is no way of actually turning the screen off, I guess that
isn't something people would normally want to do.  All you can do
as far as I know is reduce brightness and turn off the backlight.

Hi,

Can someone confirm (I can't see whether it's doing it) that
the nc10 is
switching the screen off by pressing fn key plus f4?

Thanks in advance,
Madleen
