    Even easier - I submitted a patch a while back against the old hdaps
    driver (on hdaps-devel) to use the hdaps sensor's keyboard/mouse
    activity readings to selectively disable/enable the mouse (and
    re-enable it after a time of no keyboard/mouse activity). This makes
    the mouse device much more usable, and you don't end up fighting it
    while trying to use the normal mouse/keyboard.
