[mac4theblind] Re: Getting rid of the trackpad

At least on my Macbook Pro, it seems I have to turn/rotor one direction for 
turning on the trackpad commander and the other for turning it off. Also, 
turning off the commander does not completely turn off the trackpad per se; for 
instance, my weather widget comes up sometimes apparently because of some 
contact with the trackpad even though the commander itself is off.
