HP Spectre x360 - Touchpad not disabled in tablet mode

[ Edited ]
Product Name: HP Spectre x360
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

On my HP Spectre x360, the touchpad is still active when the laptop is in tablet mode.  The keyboard is disabled as expected however.  Is there a setting that can also disable the touchpad in tablet mode?

Hello,

 

 

Did this happen Out of Box or after you owned the notebook for sometime?

 

 

Is the keyboard itself functional as well or just the touchpad?

Yes this happens out of the box with no custimizations.  It's unusual that the keyboard will autodisable in tablet mode, but not the trackpad.  It results in accidental mouse movements.

Hello,

 

I'm having the same problem out of the box. I've had the spectre for about an hour now and I just noticed that the trackpad is active in tablet mode. The keyboard isn't active.
