Hi,
I have a (synPS/2) synaptics touchpad that I should be able to disable with gpointing-device-settings - and this does seem to work for a couple of minutes before the touchpad suddenly starts working again. This also seems to apply to any changes that I try to make to the touchpad settings, whether through this gui or a startup shell script. Can anyone tell me what might be causing this?

Have you tried disabling it in the BIOS instead?
