    My Macbook Pro's trackpad has gone on the fritz, without touching it clicks something, drags something, will go into mission control. At first I thought it was a hardware issue and then when I clean installed lion, it randomly started working again... for about a week and then went nuts again, so i dont know. I bought a magic trackpad and and have it set to ignore when external mouse is used but is there anyway of actually disabling the hardware through terminal? Im way past warranty and am getting ready to upgrade so i dont want to spend money to fix it if I can just keep on using the MTP. But sometimes it will randomly disconnect and all the sudden i have all these windows being opened and my dock icons being dragged out. Thanks for any help!

    no one knows the terminal command to disable it like you can with bluetooth or isight?
