    Lightbulb Trackpad toggle -- what does it actually do?

    Hi everybody! I'm a long time user of Ubuntu, and I was really happy that the 10.10 RC installed perfectly on my new HP Pavilion dm3!

    There's just one little thing that seems broken. Right above my trackpad, there's a little button that looks like it toggles the trackpad on and off. Indeed, when I press it, a notification pops up in the top-right of the screen, with a picture of a trackpad and a small red "x" on top of it.

    Awesome! This way I won't accidentally click the trackpad somewhere else while I'm typing. Except... I don't think the button actually does anything besides give the notification. I can move the mouse and tap on the trackpad to click, whether I've toggled the trackpad on or off.

    Does anybody know of a way to get this button to work properly, or failing that, figure out what pressing the button is actually doing?

    Thanks!

    I'm trying out 10.10 on my dm3 and am having the same problem. Does anyone at least know where I could submit a bug report to? Thanks.

    Just logging back into the forums to say -- this problem still exists in Pangolin 12.04. At least for me. Any advice?
